Helpful Links from Our Facebook Page

Over the past year and a half, I’ve enjoyed scouring the internet for interesting links to share at our Montessori for Everyone Facebook page.

While I love sharing information there, one negative is that as links move down the page, they eventually roll off the page and it’s hard to go back later and find them.

So, I took some time to assemble this list of all the helpful links I’ve shared on Facebook. Keep in mind this list is not meant to be an exhaustive list of online Montessori resources – not at all. Instead it’s just all the Facebook links I’ve shared, easily accessible in one place.

There were some things I did not include – for instance, links to my own blog (use the categories or search box on the right) as well as questions and discussions that have taken place on Facebook. I’ll try to put some of those into a blog post when I have a chance.

In the meantime, enjoy!

    Wow – what a great list! I know how long it takes to create all of the links, and I think I can speak for everyone when I saw we truly appreciate it!

    Honestly, you are such a blessing – THANK YOU for all of the wonderful resources you create and sell in your store, and your insightful and well-written posts. I’m going through your archives now and finding a wealth of information that has been SO helpful to me as I begin to plan and prepare for our new homeschool classroom.

    Thank you so much, Mari-Ann! Yes, it did take awhile to create this list – but not as long as I thought it would, which was good 🙂 It was fun for me to look back through all the discussions and see the interesting and thoughtful comments.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I ditto Mari-Ann’s comment. I always try to take the time to follow up or read something you’ve recommended. I often give your web address to other friends – both homeschoolers and those whose children are attending public &/or private schools. You offer a wealth of information that is beneficial to anyone interested in their child’s education, whether in a Montessori school or not.

    I do hope that my site & blog are helpful to all parents and teachers, even those who are not focused on Montessori. There’s so much great info out there that is applicable to learning, generally, and the more we share, the better!
