If you’re looking for Montessori elementary albums, the best place to start is with Montessori elementary training if you can afford it and it’s feasible with your life situation. Because you’ll make or be given albums along with the information and guidance you receive in your training, that’s the ideal situation.
If you want to teach in a Montessori elementary school, you’ll need the Montessori elementary training from the beginning. But if you’re planning to use Montessori elementary education in your homeschool, you have a lot more options. Montessori elementary training isn’t essential for Montessori homeschools, although it will give you more confidence.
Many Montessori elementary schools require Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) or American Montessori Society (AMS) training for their teachers. It always helps if you talk with the Montessori elementary school where you’re interested in teaching to find out its requirements. For homeschooling, there are Montessori elementary training courses you can take online if you want the information but aren’t as concerned about a specific teacher certification.
For my earlier Montessori elementary posts with background information, see Introduction to Montessori Elementary, Montessori Elementary Homeschool Inspiration and Ideas, and Free Montessori Elementary Montessori Materials Online (including free Montessori elementary albums).
