  2. I like the Montessori stuff even though I don't personally do it and my kids are bigger. I get a lot of ideas I can adapt for my English classes and I personally think they fit right in with your everyday blog! So one vote for keeping it all here. (Not that you asked for votes....but!)

  5. This is great! I didn't know about a lot of these links. I think I'll add some to my blog too! Can I put something in Mr Linky that isn't mine or a blog? There is an etsy site called Homemade Montessori that sells lovely homemade montessori (duh!) items.

  8. I started reading your blog because of all the Montessori activities - and your sewing! Thank you so much for the list. I read way too many blogs and often skip posts, but not yours. I really love it and thank you for sharing all of your ideas and information with a bunch of strangers. This list looks great.
    Thanks again!

  19. I am so glad to have found your numerous sites - after Spoonflower linked to your preemie quilt. Who knew I would find a fellow lover of Montessori education! I started a blog & have tried to blog about some of my Montessori quilts, but I never seem to have the time! :)
    I make Montessori educational materials on Etsy though... www.amykuhlcox.etsy.com
    Now, if I could just find the time to post on www.amykuhlcox.blogspot.com about Montessori materials! Thanks for the links! I can't wait to visit them all!
