It can feel overwhelming for homeschoolers to know which order is best for presenting Montessori materials and activities. Having a scope and sequence available makes it so much easier. I’m going to share free scope and sequence resources here to help with your planning and record keeping … whether you’re a homeschooler or a teacher looking for extra resources.

Free Montessori Scope and Sequence Printable Checklists (Instant Downloads)
To keep it from being overwhelming, I’m not going to share every scope and sequence available. These are some that are free and easy to use.
Planning Book/Record Keeping (3 to 6+ Curriculum) from Maitri Learning (The editable Word file is the checklist I like to use because I can adapt it for my specific preferences. For example, I like to have my sandpaper letters listed in the order I teach them. (You can see that order here.)

Organizing Elementary Montessori Presentations (not a printable, although you could use this format to make your own) from Montessori Nuggets
Montessori Compass and The Montessori Foundation have an amazing free resource for ages 0-12. For homeschoolers and other individuals, it’s only available online, but it’s still a fantastic resource. I have a blog post about it here. You can access it directly here.
I typically use a Montessori scope and sequence checklist along with the Ultimate Montessori Planner from Every Star Is Different. You can read about how I use it here. (Note: Although the scope and sequence printables I’ve shared here are free, the Ultimate Montessori Planner is very reasonably priced but not free.)
Online Training with Included Teaching Manuals for Homeschoolers
If you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of Montessori homeschooling a 2½-6 year old, you might want to consider a complete homeschool course that’s reasonably priced and includes a set of teaching albums, such as KHT Montessori’s online course. For elementary Montessori homeschooling, you could check out the Keys of the Universe online course.
