My first sponsor is the wonderful company who sponsored my first blogiversary giveaway with the fantastic prize of the entire Montessori Print Shop Collection on two CD-Roms!
Montessori Print Shop is also the first company I downloaded a digital Montessori material from during my school placement for my M.A. program in Early Childhood Studies. How awesome it was to find a beautiful free printable about dinosaurs to use with the model dinosaurs at the English day nursery where I was introducing Montessori activities! That first experience with Montessori Print Shop was great – and the site has improved every year since!
Montessori Print Shop Store
Montessori Print Shop store has close to 1000 inexpensive but beautiful Montessori files available to download. The materials were all designed by an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) certified teacher with over 17 years of Montessori experience. There are materials for ages 18 months-7 years. Here are the categories and images of just a few of the materials.
Language, including the pink, blue, and green series:
Science and Culture:
The individual files are very affordable – just a few dollars typically with a number of the files less than $2. The best deal is to purchase the entire collection in the two CD-Roms. Then you receive almost 1000 files for $580.25 rather than spending over $2100 if you purchase them all individually!
Here are the areas covered:
4. Language (includes the entire phonics program and French Classified Cards)
7. Picture Cards
10. Teacher – Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, and Math Teaching Albums; Basic Unit Starters; and Teacher Time-Savers
The free materials at Montessori Print Shop are beautiful as well – and you can’t beat the price! I definitely recommend signing up for the blog email list.

If you subscribe to the email list, you won’t miss out!
