Recently I have sorted and rearrange all the toys. I’ve tried to put most of the montessori materials together so it’s easily accessible by the kids.

After sorting it out, I realize over the months , I have “collected” quite a handful of materials. Almost can run a school already. :D

These are the materials I have:

  1. LMA
  2. Sandpaper numerals,  strokes, letter
  3. Dressing frames (button and ribbon)
  4. 3 Pink Object boxes
  5. Treading Beads
  6. Cutting Fruits
  7. Continent Map
  8. Sandpaper Globe
  9. Homemade spindle box
  10. Pink Tower
  11. Cards & Counters
  12. Mini red rods
  13. Mini number rods
  14. Mini knobbed cylinder
  15. Bead stairs
  16. Hundred bead chain
  17. Contructive Triangle (3 boxes)
  18. Knobless Cylinder (Red box)
  19. Touch board
  20. Color tablets
  21. Binomial cubes
  22. Hundred Boards
  23. Golden beads for decimal
  24. stamp game
  25. snake game
  26. Folding cloth
  27. Home made sequine board
  28. Home made large number cards
  29. Addition strip board
  30. Subtraction strip board
  31. multiplication board
  32. division board
  33. Mat, trays, jug, tongs, bowl, marble, peg, clips ,syringe etc etc for PLE

I should really stop buying materials, else I will run out of place of storing them and turning my home into a school. :D

    Wow, those are good stuffs. Montessori method is good but not all montessori schools are good. I wonder why?

    Not all montessori schools are good because people who runs it might not have the true understanding or simply too profit minded

    Hi Elaine
    Would like to check where did you get the Constructive Triangles, Binomial cube? How much does it cost?

    I collected my materials from various sources online. Often when there’s discount. Can’t remember how much the set cost me, and I think the site I got my constructive triangles already no longer in business.
