Book Review: Montessori at Home
by Heidi Anne Spietz
Rossmoor, CA: American Montessori Consulting, 1988
"Montessori at Home" is an older book you might want to find in your local library system if you are interesting in using Montessori methods in your homeschool.
Heidi Anne Spietz offers a review of the basic tenets of a Montessori education, then offers very concrete examples of how to carry out such an education for children from ages three to six. She provides ways to make Montessori materials, integrate practical life skills, observe the world, and teach numbers, letters, shapes and geography. This is a very useful book for those homeschooling a preschooler!
