Living Montesorri Now - Blog Review

Living Montessori Now is a terrific blog by Deb Chitwood, an experienced and trained Montessori teacher with a masters degree in Early Childhood Studies. Her blog focuses on lessons and inspiration for Montessorian teachings, specifically for setting up a Montessori classroom or homeschooling with a Montessorian approach. 

Chitwood's blog is updated regularly with posts on specific activities as well as reviews on books Chitwood recommends and specific Montessori materials. There is a full community forum to discuss topics about homeschooling, unschooling and school settings for parents and teachers. There are facebook and twitter connections as well for extended interaction. 

Living Montessori Now has a great feature called Montessori Monday Link Up. Every Monday Chitwood links up with other bloggers and parents and teachers who have Montessori activities and lessons of their own to share with this Montessori community. 

If you want to follow or are interested in following Montessori methods, this is a fantastic website to follow and explore. It has plenty of resources and links to keep you up to date on Montessori teachings in a very collaborative, open way. 

I give this site five stars out of five!!!
