We are very excited about a new line of Read and Illustrate Readers for children. So far, we have 2 of 15 books available. These books come in 2-Parts and offer children beautiful photographic images, factual information, with text that is appropriate yet challenging for the emergent reader. Part 1 is a fully illustrated version of the book that the children can read and internalize the concepts. We recommend printing this version on card stock, laminating it, and binding it so that it will have a long shelf life.Part 2 is exactly the same as Part 1, except that it has text only, with blank space for the children to illustrate the concepts on each page. This allows children to creatively demonstrate their understanding of the concepts that they have read. We recommend printing this version on regular paper for each child. You can staple the pages together, have them illustrate the pages, and allow them to keep their own copy for reading at home.

Montessori Pink Blue Green Language Series
Storing our Montessori Pink Blue Green Language Series isn’t as overwhelming as it might seem. The easiest, most organized, and accessible way looks like this:
These hardware towers are available at most hardware stores, Wal-Mart, etc. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes – be sure the individual drawers are wide enough for all the small cards (we designed all of the card sets to fit into the standard size drawers – but please check before purchasing).
For the sheets and labels, sentence cards, sound choice cards, etc (materials that are too big for the towers) – you can use a variety of color-coded baskets and trays. Dollar Stores are famous for having a huge assortment of colored trays, baskets, boxes, etc.
We have not only our Pink Blue Green Series stored, but it includes most of our Primary Montessori Grammar Materials too! What a fantastic way to keep a huge assortment of language materials together in one place and so easily accessible to the children. The drawers are easily removed from the tower and taken to a work space – then easily slid back into the tower when the work is completed.
We have free labels for the storage drawers that can be downloaded from our Free Montessori Materials page. Print, cut and adhere to the outside of the drawer with tape (tape across the label and wrap it around the edges of the drawer so that label is protected) … quick and easy!
The children will love watching their bean seeds grow! This article gives step by step instructions on how to grow bean seeds with your children.

1. What is Montessori Nomenclature?
Nomenclature cards and booklets identify and name the various parts of the object or animal you are learning about. Each part is isolated in color which draws your attention to that particular part and not to superfluous details.
We’ve divided our Nomenclature in to 3 categories:
