Hi,

My cousin wanted to use the montessori method to homeschool her 1st grader in the fall. Will you please share links and ideas with me?

Thanks

Rebecca

We're using Enki, which is a very rich, creative curriculum and combines waldorf and montessori methods:

Montessori Services and For Small Hands (a part of MS) has a catalog you can order.  It's great fun to look through and get ideas from, even if you aren't Montessori.  They cover elementary in the catalog as well.

This is a pretty extensive curriculum that can be used with a variety of ages.  I'm not sure how complete it would be for first grade but things can be easily added.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestions. I gave her the two books I had: Montessori:play and learn. and, Hainstocks" Montesorri preschool years. She said she ordered Hainstock's Montesoori for elementary years. I looked at that elementary book on amazon, and it sells for $60 used! I hope it helps her.
