One of my nephews recently started attending a Montessori school and his renewed love for learning and school has spurred my interest in finding out more about Montessori.
Many of you may be very familiar with Montessori teaching methods, but I wasn't. I love that much of Montessori teaching is child directed rather than teacher (or parent directed) and that as a parent (or teacher) you can help guide and follow your child's natural interests and abilities.
There are so many wonderful Montessori resources online, these are just a few of my favorite blogs, mostly by moms or teachers with ideas for Montessori inspired activities to do with your little ones.
