In many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, summer vacation is coming to an end, and families and teachers are getting ready to head back to school.  If you are a homeschooler or a teacher of 3-6-year-olds, you are probably starting to make plans for the coming school year.  

Today I’d like to share with you some of my favorite free Montessori-friendly printable resources from around the web that you can use in your classroom or homeschool room.

Get your Montessori Record-Keeping systems in order with this free scope and sequence set from Montessori Works.  Get more ideas about how to manage record-keeping and ideas for curriculum planning from Trillium Montessori.

Monthly Themes
In addition to the standard materials, like the ones above, that you will want to have on your shelves year-round, try adding the following thematic printables throughout the year to bring some variety and interest to your various curriculum areas. Some of these printables can be used as-is, but some will need a few adaptations to be suitable for your Montessori shelves.
