montessori materials

For those looking for info on Montessori materials most of what we do is just play with hands on materials. I was asked a question about Montessori for kindergarten. Most of what I am familiar with is preschool stuff and the Mass kits that all my children love!!!

Some Montessori buzz words are: (my girl friend recommended these)
Catechism of the Good Shepherd Program
The Stamp Game
The World Continent Map
Sand paper letters
Binomial cube
Golden beads
1-10 chains
Metal insets
Number rods
Brown stairs
Pink towers

I am sure there are tons of other people who have suggestions...I would love to hear them for those interested!!!

Thy Will Be Done!!!+JMJ+

many people make their own materials...also try freecycle in your town...
