    I have to say that my favorite material is the hundred board. I loved watching my son’s progress as he got faster each time he did it! That really illustrates the Montessori theory that the process is just as important as the finished product if not more so.

  • Tina @ Squirrel Acorns said at December 7th, 2010 at 9:43 am :

    Great giveaway! I love everything that we’ve gotten from Alisons. I love all the Montessori math materials. My older son learned math the more traditional way, and my younger one using Montessori, and the younger one has such a better conceptual grasp of math.

  • Dipti said at December 7th, 2010 at 9:56 am :

    Great giveaway! My sons enjoy the movable alphabet and the hundreds board that we have gotten from Allisons.

    Thanks so much for the chance at a great giveaway! I would love the gift certifcate to add more of your gorgeous geography works to our continent boxes. My fave Montessori materials for my girls are anything in the practical life area (they love tonging/transferring), as well as the golden bead materials ability to make an abstract concept so understandable.

    Thank you for the giveaway. My current favorite Montessori material is the sandpaper letters. It really helps my 3 year old to learn to write and read.

  • Stefanie said at December 7th, 2010 at 11:54 am :

    I have enjoyed both Alison’s Montessori products and your printables for years.
    I must say, Alison has taken care of me in the past without problem and the materials she offers do last.
    Thank you for offering you giveaway again.

  • kaye braswell said at December 7th, 2010 at 5:53 pm :

    I teach a first through third grade mentally disabled class and have been amazed with the progress my students have made using Montessori materials. They have learned how to read and follow their individual work plans. It is so exciting to watch them become more independent. I have used many of your free materials and appreciate you sharing with other educators. I’ve also purchased the pink and blue ELA materials. Thank you for such an informative web site and for sharing your love and knowledge of children.

  • My Boys' Teacher said at December 7th, 2010 at 6:45 pm :

    You are, of course, already on my blogroll. I love your blog! Thanks for all you do!

  • My Boys' Teacher said at December 7th, 2010 at 6:48 pm :

    My favorite Montessori material are the puzzle maps. It is so exciting to see my sons learning geography at an age when they are so ready to absorb the information.

  • Yvonnie Ametin-Castro said at December 7th, 2010 at 7:44 pm :

    My favorite Montessori material are the sandpaper letters. I love watching a child learn and have an interest in the letters and sounds with the touch of the letters.

  • Andrea said at December 7th, 2010 at 9:18 pm :

    Wow! My favorite Montessori material would have to be the pink tower, because it is my kids’ favorite. They never get tired of it, it’s so chipped and worn! Fun giveaway! Alison’s and Montessori for Everyone are two of my favorite places.

  • Diana said at December 7th, 2010 at 11:03 pm :

    I am currently taking a course to become a certified Montessori teacher. I live in Germany so the course is only offered in German. I have learned a great deal through the course, but your website has been quite helpful in bringing what I have learned in German to my mother tongue.

    My favorite Montessori material so far is the “Markenspiel” or the Stamp Game. I teach in an international school that is not Montessori based, but some of us have been introducing the materials and concepts.

    Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  • Lixa said at December 8th, 2010 at 1:50 am :

    My favourite are the sandpaper letters, that’s why I would love to win these!

  • Maria said at December 8th, 2010 at 2:35 am :

    I’d love the opportunity to participate!

    My favourite Montessori materials are the fraction circles – such concrete hands-on learning of what can be a complicated idea.

    Thanks Lori!!!

  • Angela said at December 8th, 2010 at 8:09 am :

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I love the continent boxes.

  • Kelda said at December 8th, 2010 at 8:21 am :

    I love the tracing boards, but I have to say my absolute favorite Montessori Material is the pink tower. No matter how young or old the kids are they can still explore and create with it.

  • Janie said at December 8th, 2010 at 9:34 am :

    my kids favorite montessori activity is grinding coffee beans and I have to say I like to do it too 🙂 also love the moveable alphabet.

  • about a girl said at December 8th, 2010 at 9:48 am :

    What a wonderful giveaway. One of my favorite materials is the bells. One of them recently got broken at my daughter’s school so if I won the gift certificate I’d give it to them to put towards some new bells.

  • Dawn Del Rossi said at December 8th, 2010 at 12:37 pm :

    I love the moveable alphabet. It’s a wonderful tool for the kids to work with.

  • Christina said at December 8th, 2010 at 4:19 pm :

    My favorite material is the moveable alphabet. The material allows the child to explore letters using their senses rather than printed on paper. There are also lots of extension activities that can add to the learning.

  • Alexa said at December 8th, 2010 at 7:52 pm :

    My favorite material is the stamp game! It’s so versatile!

  • Lindsay said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:37 pm :

    The most perfect language material to complete the language area in my preschool classroom!

  • Silvia said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:42 pm :

    Awesome giveaway !
    I’m not sure if I can decide which montessori material is my favorite. I like dressing frames, moveable alphabet, sandpaper letters and pink tower.
    My son is 2 1/2 year old and is homeschooled. Would really love to win this giveaway prize as our budget for buying montessori materials is very limited.
    Thank you !

  • Jennifer said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:44 pm :

    Favorite material… How tough! I’m going to have to say the maps… I delight in watching young children punch out the shapes and then put them together themselves. 🙂

  • Joy Schmitz said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:47 pm :

    I have enjoyed your blog and learned so much about Montessori. I like so much of it, but I would say my daughter’s favorite are the part cards. Where they can identify the parts of an object the cards represent (Parts of a plant, frog, fish, horse, etc.). She loves to make little books from the pages she has colored and labeled.

  • Mandy said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:53 pm :

    The moveable alphabet is the most popular at our house. So many different activities!

  • Holly gomez said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:54 pm :

    Our four children love Montessori lessons. We have used many of your downloads for three part cards. Your facebook page keeps my creativity. It’s a joy having your online leadership and dupport

  • Jennifer said at December 9th, 2010 at 1:54 pm :

    I love the sandpaper letters

  • Cass Willis said at December 9th, 2010 at 2:06 pm :

    I’d love to win these two fantastic items! My son turns 2 in a couple of weeks and would really enjoy these tracing letters. We’d be using them as letter tiles first though. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Suzanne said at December 9th, 2010 at 2:18 pm :

    What a great learning tool!! Our daughters are both in Montessori & we love the program. My favorites are the golden beads, moveable alphabet & hundred board. Our girls both love the hands on approach to Montessori & we can’t get enough of it at home! Thanks 🙂

  • Lillian said at December 9th, 2010 at 2:29 pm :

    I like following you on Facebook. I get many good ideas from you.

  • Melissa said at December 9th, 2010 at 2:58 pm :

    I love Montessori Education!!! My favourite material is the Stamp Game – learning math never seemed so easy and fun! It’s amazing the concepts the students pick up from this material.

  • LeeAnna Lutz said at December 9th, 2010 at 3:11 pm :

    I love so many of my materials, but I think I would have to say Golden beads are my favorite. They would have made my life so much easier as a child. I think they are just so beautiful! Please enter me in this week’s drawing.
