Win a Complete CD-ROM from Montessori for Everyone

***This contest has now ended – thanks to all who participated!***


This March is the 4th anniversary of Montessori for Everyone – four years ago, I opened an eBay store (then called Lori’s Montessori Materials) to see if anyone would be interested in buying the stuff I had been making for my own classroom.

You were.

The sales started to pour in, at first just a trickle and then a deluge. I got to work making more stuff, tweaking my store, and suddenly I had a real business on my hands.

What an amazing four years! Now I have over 250 items for sale; my materials are used around the world in homes and schools. People greet me at conferences like a rock star (“Are you Lori, from Montessori for Everyone?? Oh my goodness!!”)

To celebrate this great milestone, I’m offering a few things as a giant “thank you” to everyone out there who has supported me, encouraged me, bought from me, and spread the word to all your friends and coworkers.

First, for the month of March you can use the code “anniversary” (without the quotes) to get 25% off any item (PDF or CD-ROM) in my store. Just enter it in the discount code box when you checkout. Use it as many times as you like during March.

Already bought one of my CD-ROMs and gotten the 50% off code? Email me to get a 75% off code for March.

Second, I’m offering a contest every week. To start things off with a bang, this week’s contest is for a Complete Collection CD-ROM with every single item that I make on it. I’ll mail it to you for free, anywhere in the world.

To enter the contest, leave a comment on this blog post telling me this:

What is your favorite thing about the Montessori method?

I look forward to reading your answers! The contest will close next Sunday night, March 8th. I”ll be picking the winner at random, and I’ll post the winner next Monday, March 9th.

Best of luck!

    “Teach me to do it by myself.” I love to hear my children tell me, “I did it all by myself.” My heart melts at these words knowing, that they are becoming the unique individuals that they werer created to be by spending time at home in a somewhat prepared environment with the child sized materials and prepared works, well as much as we are able to give them in a family home.

    It´s hard to narrow it down to one thing, but what I love is that Maria Montessori recognized the intelligence and dignity of children from the moment they are born (even before).

    My favorite thing is how the child is respected. Teachers learn how to respect the child and learn to understand their behavior. The Montessori Method is gentle.

    My favorite thing about the Montessori method is the way is it is based on child development and there is scientific reasoning behind the types of activities that are chosen and in the order they are given.

    My favourite thing about the Montessori method….. Stepping back to observe the children as they learn, so much to discover for the child and the parent as I discover my child’s true nature. It is so wonderful to watch the children’s discoveries and teches me to respect the child who helps me understand how to give without counting the costs just as the litte ones do.

    My favorite thing about the Montessori Method is the focus on Grace and Courtesy, and how it actively encourages the child to become a true citizen of the world. The child starts by becoming a citizen of his/her family and classroom, and works his/her way out to becoming a citizen of the school, then community, then state, country, and eventually the world.

    My favorite thing is individuality. I appreciate every little different quality of each of our four daughters and Montessori is all about freedom of choice , timing and being your own person. All children learn on a seprate level and in very different ways. Montessori gives the child that opportunity to be him or herself and build on their individual qualities. Thank YOU so much for caring about all of the children.
