Montessori Spring Composting: Vermiposting





"The land is where our roots are. The children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth." 
       ~Maria Montessori

We have a new house!! And with a new place comes all kinds of wonderful projects. The kids and I decided to jump start our composting pile with some worms. This is called vermiposting. Here's how we took an old container that was cracked and broken from countless moves and made it a place for our worms to make rich and useful compost!

Montessori on a Budget: How Did it All Start and What's Ahead?


In January 2013 I turned my Montessori blog, Montessori on a Budget, into a co-op blog by opening it up for Montessori moms who didn't have a blog but wanted to try blogging including using associate links to make a little extra $. I've been a blogger since 2008 and it was time for me to give back! 

I was contacted by Marie and Kim in the winter of 2012 and I took them under my Montessori blogging wing...

Tour our Homeschooling Room

I seem to be changing our schooling room around a lot these days. About every six months it seems it's time for a change and that's because our family is changing. The biggest change for us this year is we now have a toddler. As I'm sure most of you know, when your sweet little baby becomes a curious toddler, things definitely change. I try to embrace those changes and adapt our living and schooling space to benefit the children in the stage they are in. Today I am sharing our homeschooling room with you. I hope you enjoy your tour. 
 "Receive the children with reverence, educate them with love, let them go forth in freedom."
- Rudolf Steiner
Looking into the room, you will see,
a perfect place for you and me.
The low shelves hold some of Baby Bells weekly activities.
 To the left you will see her floor mat and play silks , in the middle she has a new wooden puzzle, and this week we have been working/playing with farm animals. So I added our schleich horses and a few toddler touch and feel books. We also are blessed to have this amazing doll house from Elves & Angels. The children have spent hours playing with it already.

Montessori books for beginners to Advanced

Years ago when I found out I was pregnant with our first baby I was so excited. Life couldn't get any better, their was a little life growing inside of me, and I knew I would do anything for this baby. I was 19 years old and clearly I had a lot to learn about babies and being the best mommy possible, so I started reading. I read everything I could get my hands on, and I'm still the same way now. Even after years of mommy life, having five children, and an educational background, I still love to get my hands on new books. 
  I've compiled a list of some of my favorite parenting and educational books hoping it would help others. There is a book on this list for everybody whether you are a new parent or raising 6, you'll find greatness in this list.
