I’m often asked how to set up a Montessori classroom at home. I wrote a post about it and published a Montessori homeschooling series: Montessori Homeschool Classroom and Materials. The problem is that it isn’t that easy to find all the posts. Since blogs go backward in time, it takes a lot of scrolling back to find a specific post out of all the posts that are already in that category.
So, today I’m going to organize and update some of my main links on Montessori homeschooling. These won’t be all the posts I’ve written in each category, but they’re probably the most important posts.

1 + 1 + 1 = 1
Montessori MOMents (now a private blog)
What DID We Do All Day? (no longer available)
Note: I organized these alphabetically to make it fair and easier to locate a particular blog’s Montessori homeschool classroom. I know so many wonderful Montessori homeschool bloggers, though, that it was impossible to find classrooms for each. It often depended on the ease of searching the site. If you have a post with photos of your Montessori homeschool classroom, please let me know so I can add it! If your Montessori environment at home fits better into my post about setting up a Montessori educational space (rather than a classroom), let me know so that I can add it to How to Set Up a Montessori Space at Home.
