... with the Montessori manuals from NMAC. They look like they are a disorganized wannabe Montessorian's dream. (And even just seeing the Table of Contents from the Practical Life manuals is enough to give me ideas I didn't have.) And then there's the sample lesson from the Preschool Sensorial Manual, which makes me realize how much more can be done with the materials than I realized. The manuals are expensive, but may be just the thing for math with Katydid, for whom numbers become somewhat meaningless unless she can hold them in her hands. And certainly if one spreads the cost over a number of years and children, then the incremental cost would be much lower. Thanks to the playschool6 list for the tip!
