  • Nomenclature 3-Part Cards – Template (Chinese text) (10kb): Blank template for customisation. I chose Magenta as the border for our homeschool’s Chinese cards. Feel free to change to another colour that isn’t used for other subjects (i.e. NOT yellow, red, blue, green, black)
  • Nomenclature 3-Part Cards – Template (12kb): Blank template for customisation. Use a different coloured border for each subject. Sample Montessori Colour Code is included in the template for your reference.
  • Individual Planning Sheet – Sample (90kb): Idea from Karen Tyler’s course. Combines Shichida home practice and Montessori work. To record my observations of what the child did that day, and plan the next step forward. During the day, I attach this to a clipboard with a pen and bring it around the house. 1 customised sheet for each child. At the end of the day, I update the template, print a new sheet for the following day, then file the old sheet.
  • Individual Planning Sheet – Template (10kb): Same as above, in editable format. Can be opened with free OpenOffice software.
  • Individual Planning Sheet – Template (Baby) (11kb): For baby 0-12 months old. Can be opened and edited with free OpenOffice software.
  • Montessori – Contract Teacher Student Planning Sheet (11kb): Idea from Karen Tyler’s course. To let child plan his work for the day, to keep him focused. I print 2 pages on 1 sheet, then cut into A5 size. I attach this to a small clipboard for the child to tick off the list as he completes his planned work. Can be opened and edited with free OpenOffice software.
  • Classroom Calendar (Date, Weather in English and Chinese) (766kb) – You may use this to introduce the date, day of the week and weather in different languages. Child may be invited to update the cards.

Hi Mie Vee, how do you use Montessori sandpaper numerals or alphabets?

Hi Celine, for Sandpaper Alphabets:

– clean hands

– optional: get a mat, put on table

– get Sandpaper Alphabets from shelf

– Show child 1 alphabet, say the sound. (Note that “x” is not initial sound, and is pronounced as “ks”)

– use index and middle finger to trace letter gently

– place on mat

– choose another 2-3 alphabets and repeat above

– return cards to box

– return box to shelf

– invite child to try

Sandpaper numerals are introduced similarly.

These materials are also used as references when the child is learning to read and write.

Hello mummy.. my 2.5yr old toddler goes to a Montessori school and I too, am a big fan of the Montessori method. I’m seriously considering taking up a course in MMI here in Singapore but it is so expensive! Can I know what Montessori online teaching course did you attend and if the certification is recognised?

Thank you so much for your help in advance =D

Hihi Yvonne, I took the course by Karen Tyler: http://www.mummysreviews.com/2012/02/01/review-karen-tyler-montessori-teacher-training-program/

It’s suitable for teaching at home or a small group. To teach in a school, it depends on the country and school. The other online course I heard of is by NAMC.

Btw combining shichida method with the Montessori method is something quite refreshing to me. I have heard of the Shichida method but haven’t really done much research on it. Will read up more on it. Thanks!

Hi,

How do you use Montessori and complement it with Shichida at birth of baby?

Reply

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com December 4, 2015 at 9:42 am

Hi Liyi, for newborn baby, right brain education (such as Shichida) consists of;
– showering him with love and touch
– showing him how to relax and breathe
– flashing beautiful picture cards and saying the names out
– reading and speed reading
– playing senses & memory games, etc.

Montessori means:
I use a lot of Montessori concepts such as a freedom of movement and choice when carrying out the right brain activities.

I also offer Montessori activities to let the child develop all his senses well.

For more details, you may explore my workshops at Owlissimo

All the best! :)
