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.

I’d also recommend taking some time to explore Renae’s blog, Every Star is Different.   She is a prolific producer of all kinds of Montessori-inspired printables and shares them generously with her readers. You will find 3-part nomenclature cards for all kinds of things there!

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 through 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.
