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?
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.
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.
