Looking for MontessoriLove

I'm so excited to be able to finally tell my readers and followers of a little something special some of us have organised.

On the 21st of each month of 2017 a group of Montessori sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers will be having a different special at their stores. Sometimes it will be a set price reduction, sometimes it will be products from a particular learning area or theme.

This months special is 50% off a selected product. 

My selected item for this month is the Plural Noun Boxes. Explore spelling rules through nouns. I have shared boxes 1-3 for free both on my blog and on TpT and boxes 4-10 are available at my store. 

Find other great Montessori resources at 50% off at TpT each month by searching: MontessoriLove.

Getting Organised {It's Elementary! #6}

I'll be honest. I was struggling to come up with something for the first linky of 2017. I'm really keen to get back to the Great Lessons, but I'm not quite ready for those just yet. So in my post-holiday fog I realised I need to start thinking about getting ready for the next school year - which starts 1st February in my state of Australia.

Planning and preparing is such an important part of what we do, and it really comes down to what works for the individual (sometimes within the frame of a school or states requirements).

I created a little freebie to share - a weekly and daily planner, featuring one of my hand drawn clip art pieces.

I have previously shared my elementary weekly planning pages. It is a simple and versatile template covering the main learning areas and includes a set of blank pages as well.

For those new to teaching Montessori (either in the home or classroom) there are some handy resources for scope and sequence aspects in following the child:
