Thank you for photo permissions!
Thank you to the wonderful bloggers who have given me permission to use your photos in my posts (with credit to you, a link to your post, and a comment letting you know I’m using your photo, of course)! If you haven’t seen my request for permissions, here’s a link to my post: Request for Montessori Photo Permissions.
If I may have permission to use photos from your blog, please let me know! Although I use Montessori photos most often, I also link to posts with crafts, art projects, and educational activities (especially unit studies). If you have posts with similar activities, I’d really appreciate photo permissions for them. I love that the photos add to the post content and also bring attention to your link.
Thank you for e-book submissions!
Thank you to all the mom bloggers and Montessori teachers (“Moms to Many”) who submitted wonderful Montessori activities and ideas! John Bowman, author of Montessori at Home, and I are putting together the free e-book we’ll be giving to our customers and to all the contributors to the e-book!
Thank you to link-up participants!
Thank you to everyone who links up and/or visits the participants in my Family-Friendly Giveaway Linky (which you can link up with at any time but is refreshed and has outdated links removed each Sunday)!

Thank you to Montessori Workspace, an online record-keeping tool for Montessori teachers that allows you to organize, record, and review your students’ educational journey.
