So many years in coming

The realization that I needed to create this blog woke me very early in the morning.  I have always wanted a place where I could share all the things I have created and lost (due to computer crashes), and recreated over the years of teaching using the montessori method.

I homeschooled my own children, and currently have responsibility for 36 little ones.  When I was working with my own children I always wished for a way to share everything I had spent so much time to create.  These kinds of blogs and sites weren't yet available.  I am so grateful to have this opportunity to share what I have created, share my thoughts, plans and all my favorites for a fantastic primary montessori education.  If I can help someone on their own journey I will feel that I have done something right.

I am excited to see what develops.


  1. Wow! This blog is wonderful! Thank you so much for creating this, and sharing your wonderful crops! Everything you have on here is especially helpful to someone like me who has neither training nor experience with Montessori, and just trying to find my way to begin. My wheels have been spinning not knowing where to start at home, and your blog has given me great jumping off points! Thank you! Thank you!

  2. I am really glad that you have found my blog. It really is becoming a labor of love. I hope to find ways to make it a very fun and great place to come as I learn all about the world of blogging. Let me know how I can help:)

  3. This is absolutely amazing all that you are sharing...Thank you!!!!

  4. I am so glad to find that there is REALLY a niche to fill here. Thank you for your kind words and the links from your blog. Check back often. There is truly a treasure trove of work to give.

  5. only one thing to tell you thank you so much .Your blog can help me so much .I am Thai .In Thailand it very difficult to find document and instrument of montessori .I very glad that I found your blog .I love montessori so much . I try to teach my daughters by montessori method but sometime they do not share with me .May be I do the wrong thing.Now i trying to find the right method from your blog.Thank you again.

    1. I really never considered that my work would reach across the globe. I am excited to have anything to do with helping the reach of Montessori education spread. Thank you so much for including my blog in your life.

  6. I am so delighted to have stumbled upon your sight via LivingMontessori. The quality of what you have produced is certainly of a high definition and I cannot wait to run off to the printers and see it all in print. I am in the process of developing my own Montessori school, and you have certainly inspired me by your story of starting with your own and now being responsible for 36 little ones! Thank you for being so selfless and sharing - I hope one day I can do the same. There are a couple of things I have devised myself, but goodness me, they are not nearly as nice as yours. I will share them once I have seen how they work with the children.... I will most certainly be checking in regularly to see what you have. May you continue to be touched by the Love, Light and Spirit!

  7. I am humbled by all the people who visit my blog, and I am inspired by the work that you are all doing. I feel all the time just how much I have to learn from all of you.

  8. Dear Cathie, what you have done here is wonderful! What makes it astonishing is the fact you are sharing it for FREE!
    I'm in the process of doing my teaching practice to get Montessori teacher diploma, home-educate my children using Montessori method (which I'm so passionate about),I have tried to make some of my own nomenclature cards (no where near the quality you have achieved!) and it is such a "blood, sweat and tears" experience!
    Your work will surely help to revolutionize the Montessori Method, which will make it more known,loved and available.
    I was so excited to find your site, I shared it with my colleagues and friends who are also very passionate about the Montessori Method.
    Again Thank You So Much!!!
