Free Montessori Albums (teacher’s guides)


If you’re just beginning your Montessori journey as we are, you know how overwhelming the process can be. I got more than a little frustrated looking at all of the different activities and materials needed to facilitate Montessori teaching at home. So much for this momma to learn! However, when I began researching, I quickly discovered that there is a wealth FREE Montessori albums online (think of these as teacher’s guides) and I want to pass along some WONDERFUL resources for those of you who would like to begin, but aren’t sure how to go about it. I’ll be updating this resource list regularly so check back for updates.

SCOPE AND SEQUENCE
Being new to the Montessori method, I also wanted a better understanding of the sequence and age appropriateness of the various Montessori activities. The following articles and outlines on Montessori scope and sequence have been a lifesaver.

Montessori Scope and Sequence for 3 to 6 and Montessori Scope and Sequence for 6 to 9 at Montessori Teachers Collective

Maitri Learning has two free PDFs: Language Material Organization and Sequence and Math Materials Organization and Sequence (scroll down to the heading Arranging the Environment). They also have  free printable Montessori planning and record keeping pages a bit further down the page.

Our Montessori Story has Montessori Scope and Sequence divided into seven periods of Montessori work from David Gettman’s book, which I am finding very helpful.

Montessori Print Shop’s blog has four posts on Montessori Scope and Sequence that are great.

Our Montessori Homeschool has posts detailing their daily Montessori lesson plans from 2009 to the present.

The Joy of Learning has Montessori Sensorial scope and sequence with lesson plans for many of the materials. She also has ideas for Montessori practical life lessons.

  11. These are great links, I did my student teaching in a Montessori classroom and it was the greatest experience! While I most likely will teach a regular classroom there are so many things from that experience I plan to take with me.
