Montessori Print Shop Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to review the Classified Cards Bundle from The Montessori Print Shop, an online store that provides reasonably priced printable Montessori materials.  They have a great selection of materials, some of which are FREE, and others that are very reasonably priced.  You can find printable Montessori based materials for almost any topic that is of interest to your child ages 2+.  They have over 1000 materials for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Elementary aged children.  I love using 3 part cards with my kids, (I only make them 2 part for the youngest), and they love them too!  It’s a great way for them to associate words with objects, and it’s self checking!
I am excited that The Montessori Print Shop has agreed to provide one more Classified Cards Bundle to giveaway to my readers!  This Bundle is valued at $63.40 and contains 41 sets of printable 3 part cards!  That is over 589 images and you can WIN IT HERE!
Click HERE for a full list of what is included in this bundle.
3-Part Classified Cards by Montessori Print Shop - Printable Montessori Materials
If you are not familiar with Montessori Method of learning, it is a hands-on learning method developed by Marie Montessori.  She believed children learned best by doing, and built a curriculum in which children are able to follow their natural curiosities to learn about the the world around them.  there are many Private and Public (aka Charter) schools throughout the world, but as homeschoolers, we can easily create a Montessori type learning environment at home.  If you are a follower of my blog, you have already seen many different Montessori based learning activities that I have implemented with my own children.  I was first introduced to Montessori in my Early Childhood Studies, I hold a MA in Early Childhood Education (birth – 3rd grade).  Having studies Early Childhood, and been taught how best children learn, is the MAIN reason I homeschool.  Children learn best by hands on activities, not by sitting at desks, and (in most cases) the public school system is not able to provide this type of education. 
If you are intrigued by the thought of Montessori and hands-on learning, but not sure where to start check out:  Montessori At Home, an ebook with step-by-step easy to follow suggestions and ideas for building a Montessori Education in your Home.  You can purchase this book now for $7.95, a 2nd version will be out soon; those who have purchased the first edition will receive the 2nd edition FREE (projected price of  ~$9.95).  I just recently received the book myself, and am looking forward to the 2nd edition!  I loved the book.  It is very informative, perfect for anyone from the beginner to the more experienced!  It has great ideas and application of Montessori principles!  I love how it makes an Montessori education doable for everyone and anyone! 
With Montessori Print Shop and Montessori at Home…giving your child a Montessori based education is so easy! 
Now onto the GIVEAWAY!  Just follow the instructions in Rafflecopoter, the Mandatory Entry MUST be completed to receive any additional entries!  GOOD LUCK!
