I consider myself a "montessori mother." I For the longest time much of the Montessori principals I used were based out of Practical life. Last year I did a "letter of the week" cirriculm found on line and used some Montessori ideas, rather than naming the letter each week I called the letter by its sound.
Our "work" was just living every day life, like doing clothes, cleaning eating ect.
Now that my DS is older and has shown interest in more of the Montessori work for Language and Math, I have set up a more prepared enviroment. I have started out with a few activities, Including Geography work(Continents), Sensorial Work(mystery bag), Language (Sand Paper letters), Practical life (scissors).
My plan is to add more work as he become more interested in different topics. Our latest topic has been Mushrooms, as we have many different variety growing in our yard. I will doing Myocology cards for him on the differnt parts of a mushroom, and the mushroom life cycle.
I present the work in the enviroment when he asks what something is, if he's interested he will work more, if not we stop.
