I’m excited today to share some amazing products that I’m an affiliate for! These are new offers through Living Montessori Now. If you purchase from one of my affiliate companies, I will receive a small commission for referring you. This helps me keep my blog and newsletter going, which have greater costs as my readership grows. I LOVE sharing activities and great products with you, and I really appreciate any help you can give me through my affiliate sales.
Of course, there’s no cost to you to click on an affiliate link or banner ad. You’ll often even receive a discount (if I have a special discount link), and you’ll never pay more by going through my affiliate links or ads. You’ll just help me get a commission for recommending the company or product. I’m only an affiliate for companies I believe in, and my recommendations are all honest and sincere.
Montessori Services and For Small Hands
I’m thrilled to be an affiliate for Montessori Services … an absolutely FABULOUS company that has been one of my very favorite Montessori suppliers from the time I owned a Montessori school in the 1980s. It was also one of my favorite Montessori suppliers when I was a Montessori homeschooler in the 1990s. The materials from Montessori Services are just as wonderful today (even more so, since there are more of them)!
Montessori Services has two sites … Montessori Services and For Small Hands. Montessori Services has LOTS of products that are perfect for Montessori teachers, schools, and homeschools. Their focus is the primary classroom (3-6 years old) and practical life is their specialty. They do offer products in all curriculum areas, though, and for children younger and older than ages 3-6.
For Small Hands offers products specifically for Montessori at home. Child-size cooking, cleaning, woodworking, and yard & garden products are unique offerings you’ll find at For Small Hands. They also have a wide range of educational games and toys that work well as complements to a Montessori education. Their main age group is 3-6, but they have products for younger and older children as well.

I’ve been an affiliate for Montessori Helper for quite a while now, but Montessori Helper just gave an amazing offer specifically for my readers!

Lisa Nolan Montessori for the Earth Online Lesson Plans and Programs
If you’ve been reading my blog, you’re probably familiar with Lisa Nolan from Lisa Nolan’s Confessions of Montessori Mom Blog. Lisa Nolan is a 3-6 and 6-9 trained Montessori teacher with over 20 years of experience as a Montessori educator. Lisa offers affordable detailed online lesson plans and albums. Lisa’s programs are homeschool-friendly, giving special care to parents and educators who want to teach Montessori at home or as an addition to their other curricula.
Many parents are unsure of transitioning to Montessori elementary, and Lisa uses her experience as a Montessori 6-9 teacher to provide help for that age level! Click on the image for lots of information about Lisa’s online programs.
I Can Teach My Child to Read: A 10-Step Guide for Parents
You might be familiar with Jenae Jacobson from the popular (and awesome) blog I Can Teach My Child. Jenae is a former elementary teacher with a master’s degree in education. She has a new eBook out that helps parents prepare their children from birth to early elementary to be readers as well as lovers of books. The book is easy to read and has many helpful ideas based on the latest reading research. The book complements Montessori education and has ideas any parent can use. Click on the book image to purchase a PDF for only $3.99. If you’d like a Kindle version, the book is available through Amazon as well.
