    I’m homeschooling, because I feel in love with Montessori as a teacher’s assistant, later got my Infant/Toddler diploma from NAMC and teach my children at home.

    My oldest will be entering preschool (at home) this fall and this would be a great tool to help our Montessori homeschooling journey.

    i home school my kids because i do not trust the mainstream school system it really sucks. and i feel that they would achieve more if they are homeschooled because they have more freedom of choice and can spend more time solving a problem than rushing thru to get done in time before shool dismisses.and they stay out of mischief.

  • Sonja said at February 20th, 2011 at 12:39 pm :

    To teach young children is to have one”s faith in human nature constantly rekindled. Montessori has changed my life, it purified my soul, enabled me to see children trough different eyes, unveiled the mystery of childhood. I am a mother of two boys ( ages 3 and 5), we live in Serbia. Here is very hard to find anything related to montessori. So all my materials , that I use for homeschooling, are homemade . I would really love to win this giveaway. It would enrich my homeschooling, and it would be the best present for my children in years.I promise that I would tell all the world, starting with my Twitter and Facebook friends about this generous. I have already told them to keep fingers crossed for me.

  • Cara said at February 20th, 2011 at 1:11 pm :

    Initially, I began homeschooling because my son fought being “institutionalized”. Since then I’ve come to appreciate the freedom, flexibility and individual attention allowed by schooling at home.

  • Jana Sammut said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:11 pm :

    As a retired preschool teacher I have learned the value of montessori . My daughter-in-law is homeschooling her children and I would love to give her these materials as I know that they can’t afford it. It would definitely help my grandchildren along the learning path. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Sara Haaf said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:52 pm :

    I love combining homeschooling with regular school because I believe life is all about learning and take every opportunity to teach my son new things that I can.

  • Heather Brandt said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:55 pm :

    As a former school teacher, I know first hand some of the common weaknesses of public education & would prefer to have more input in differentiating my son’s learning experiences so they are engaging and hands-on.

  • Karen Marks said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:55 pm :

    I have a a 2 1/2 year old and a 3 year old. I try to make my own Montessori materials at home, but this set would be a dream come true for us. A friend of mine and I were hoping to start a Montessori co-op since there’s a real need for it – this would be exactly what we needed to get it going!

    There are some many good entries – good luck, everyone! Whoever wins will be very happy πŸ™‚

  • Bethany said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:57 pm :

    What an amazing giveaway! There are so many reasons to homeschool– parents are the primary educators of their children, a customized education, one-on-one attention, less peer pressure, more control over outside influences, ability to incorporate our family’s faith and values, flexibility, and so on and so on and so on!

  • Gudrun Wiesenthal said at February 20th, 2011 at 2:57 pm :

    Just saw your amazing give away and could not help but to coment on your generousity! There is no better gift to give a child than the life skills need to discover themselves and the world in a safe a loving way.

    Unfortunitly children are not born with manuals and being a parent does not always allow for the studdy time needed to gain the skills of being the perfect educator/parent. I know this because I have an amazing 3 and 1 year old who seem to teach me more than I do them.

    This amazing give away will do so much more than help a lucky parent to flurish and grow in their most rewarding and demanding role in life, but their children and comunity will benifit too, if only every parent could benifit from this amazing giveway, what amazing parent we would be, and what wonderfuly happy potential filling children we would all have.

    Gudrun,

  • Jennifer said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:00 pm :

    I believe parents are the best teachers, and that Montessori meets children’s education needs in a manner much better than traditional schooling.

  • Elena Lora said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:06 pm :

    We are considering homeschooling our 6 year old, because unlike his older sisters, he adjusts very slowly to new surroundings. The energy and stress he puts into adjusting takes away from other learning. I think he’ll get there eventually so I don’t want to isolate him, but I don’t want him to fall terribly behind and I do not want him to develop an intense distaste for school either.

  • Bethany said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:10 pm :

  • Donna said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:12 pm :

    My son & daughter in law are planning to homeschool my grandson with mentessori approach. I would really love to win this montessori homeschooling materials as I would love to give this materials to them. Thanks for the awesome giveaway !

  • Sabrina said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:21 pm :

    The kids would love these works! What an amazing give away! Montessori is the best!

  • Sarah said at February 20th, 2011 at 3:59 pm :

    wow, that is one awesome give away! We homeschool for a variety of reasons, boiled down it amounts to creating free thinkers instead of worker bees. I think my bumper sticker sums it up: life is the school, love is the lesson. πŸ™‚

  • Renee Gawlak - Ghenciu said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:08 pm :

    I will be homeschooling because I believe that no one cares for my child’s well-being as much as his parents. I believe that children are taught irrellevant subjects and important subjects are marginalized and completely ignored. Also it is absolutely abhorrent how children’s creativity is stifled. I will teach my son to lead and think for himself. We’d love to win this prize.

  • Mariana said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:14 pm :

    Pick me! Pick me!

    Education is SO important for our society and with our current
    struggles, we should aim to focus on our future generations.

  • Melanie Church said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:15 pm :

    I have three children with a fourth on the way. My kids are 6, 4 and 2. The oldest is “officially” homeschooling, but all my children read and are fluet in sign language. We found that homeschooling was a natural extension of how we live our lives, and by the time my oldest was ready for Kindergarten, he was already working at a 2nd grade level, and the local school system and private schools could not accomodate him. Nor could either of those other schooling scenarios give our children the hands- on learning environment that we can provide at home.

  • I.Magan said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:16 pm :

    I am interested in homeschooling because I think that public/mainstream education doesn’t meet very high standards, there are too many students per classroom and shortage of good teaching staff. I think that nobody knows the individuality of a child as their own parents, therefore when there is real interest in giving your child the best education you can, you are the one that is best qualified to know exactly what your child needs and how you can meet those needs.

  • Stacey said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:46 pm :

    My daughter has a mild sensory integration disorder and she works much better in a home setting. We have been homeschooling for 4 years now and love it.

  • Stacey said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:54 pm :

    Enjoy! Thanks.

  • Kelly said at February 20th, 2011 at 4:57 pm :

    We currently homeschool our two girls and have always loved the montessori teaching methods. I think my younger daughter would really benefit from using these materials!

  • Michelle Melani said at February 20th, 2011 at 5:09 pm :

    My four-year-old boy is in a Montessori preschool this year, but I am going to start homeschooling him next year. Since we will be doing without my income to make this happen, winning the NAMC Montessori Homeschool program would be a dream come true. πŸ™‚

  • Nathan's mom said at February 20th, 2011 at 5:10 pm :

    Would really love to win this as we have been wanting to buy the NAMC homeschooling program for a while, but because of the price, we currently can’t afford it. Praying so hard that we will win.

  • Michelle Melani said at February 20th, 2011 at 5:20 pm :

    Just linked to it in my blog.

    Thanks so much for giving us this chance to win!

  • Lindsi Archabald said at February 20th, 2011 at 5:39 pm :

    This is an exciting offer! I have three small children, I know that parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. This is a great program, I would love to share it with my family and friends! Thank you!

  • Meredith said at February 20th, 2011 at 5:55 pm :

    I was a montessori child and plan to continue with my children. The only problem is that the nearest school is an hour away. Homeschool is the next best thing.

  • Susan K Norman said at February 20th, 2011 at 6:08 pm :

    I homeschooled my children 10 years ago and will be homeschooling my grandchildren.I think my daughter would really benefit from using these materials!
    What an amazing give away! Thanks so much for giving us this opportunity.

  • Gea Tung said at February 20th, 2011 at 6:26 pm :

    I would like to work with my grandson who cannot yet attend a Montessori school because of effects of treatment for leukemia. I need help with materials. I think this offer is amazing!

  • Venus Farhadi said at February 20th, 2011 at 7:27 pm :

    I want to be a professional homeschool teacher for my daughter before going to school, And I believe this program will help me perfect.

  • Lisa said at February 20th, 2011 at 7:37 pm :

    The modern school system is not “real life”. Kids sitting under structured rule with same age peers for 8 hours per day, 5 days per week, for 13 years of their life without seeing the world, being able to use the bathroom when they want, without recess, without hands-on day to day “fun”…that’s not real life. Education should be all encompassing…it’s what we live, eat, breath, think…traveling, exploring nature… that’s real life. Homeschooling makes that possible.

  • kristi said at February 20th, 2011 at 7:47 pm :

    What a fantastic giveaway. I will begin homeschooling both of my boys this summer.

  • Lori said at February 20th, 2011 at 8:43 pm :

    I am interested because I want my daughter to be a life-long learner and enjoy the process of discovery and learning and I just don’t think modern, American school structure fosters that. Learning is not just 8-3 M-F, it’s all day everyday, for the rest of your life.

  • Sidra said at February 20th, 2011 at 8:56 pm :

    I currently teach in a Montessori school and would love to have Montessori material for me to use at home with my son. πŸ™‚

  • Lisa said at February 20th, 2011 at 9:05 pm :

    What an incredible giveaway! We’re strongly considering homeschooling, and I’ve been deeply inspired my Montessori ideas for a while now: as a preschool teacher at a place that integrated lots of the Montessori approach, by friends who teach Montessori, and by homeschooling friends. This would be an unbelievable resource.

  • Jen C. said at February 20th, 2011 at 9:12 pm :

    I am new to homeschooling because my 8-year-old was getting bullied terribly. It all started after my husband got deployed for the third time in September (we only had 3 days notice! yuck!) My son had always struggled with reading and now that he has one-on-one time with me he is reading! πŸ™‚ I’m thankful that I finally put on my big girl panties and listened to myself and did what I have been feeling that I should have done from the start.

    I’m very interested in it!! BUt, I’m late!!! Buah!!!
