I'm interested in homeschooling my daughter next year, she'll be starting kindergarten. There are so many wonderful ideas/methods to teaching young children and I've been using a mix to teach her already. I'm starting to look into purchasing curriculum for next year now so I will have time to prepare. I've found some lovely Waldorf curriculum I think I'm going to use mostly, but I've used a lot of Montessori methods for phonics and letters, and she has responded really beautifully. However, most of what I've done is just research on internet or get from library books, and while I've found great individual lessons I have not found anything with a complete overview. I was hoping to find some Montessori curriculum books that would tell me the order to teach the pink series, blends, digraphs, blue series, etc. I just want to make sure I teach her in the right order and don't leave out anything. If anyone could point me to a book on Montessori language curriculum that would be great!
Try to see if you can look up, there was this great site, I can't remember what they are called. Something about Montessori teacher folder/ file. It was all online the whole curriculum the only thing I remember (SIGH GASP) was it was a an Asian looikng lady.. no help. will try to find it.
Ah they are called Montessori Teaching Albums, every teacher is "expected" to have on :P
This site has a lit of some that are available online:
This was the one I was thinking about:
It looks like a plain site but after 3 years I still thinks ITS AMAZING.
a) it's all in order (i.e. what to "teach" first)
b) super easy to print + she gives the real name of the activity that you can then Google and see how other teachers do it or adapt it or see a video on the presentations. Hope this helps!
