Montessori Print Shop Giveaway!!

~This giveaway is now CLOSED~

I am SO excited about this giveaway - one of you is going to win something truly amazing!

The lovely Jennifer, owner of Montessori Print Shop, is generously gifting one of my readers a deluxe CD-Rom collection! Eeek! We're talking about a wealth of resources valued at $580!

Seriously, you will not believe just how much is packed onto these two discs. It is nothing short of a complete curriculum with loads of materials covering a wide range of subjects:
Incredible, right?! There are over 950 files on these discs - far too many for me to detail, but here's a sample of what you'll get...

Language cards, everything you need for the pink/blue/green series AND tons of cards in French and Hebrew, plus MUCH more.

Lots of materials and extensions for your sensorial shelves.

A huge geography pack including maps, land and water forms, and tons of cards for your continent boxes.

Math, math and more math - everything from time cards to seasonal counting cards to the entire geometry cabinet!

Additionally, Jennifer has also created some really fun and unique files, such as:
Cookware Classification Cards
Recycling Matters Card Set
Medieval Knights Picture Cards
Animal Tracks Matching Cards
Pin Punching Cards

AND, as if all that weren't enough, included on the discs are FOUR fantastic Montessori teaching manuals as well several other teacher resource files! These are perfect for those of you who can't/don't want to pay for online training courses, but still want to know more about how to create and present lessons.

Want to know the *best* things about these discs? You'll be using them for years! There are materials appropriate for toddlers, preschoolers, and grade school children!

Phew! Can you tell I'm excited?!

Finally just a quick word about quality... it's clear a lot of time and thought went into creating these materials. For example, the images used - one thing I'm really picky about when it comes to the printables we use in our classroom is the type of images used on the printable. I very much prefer real life photos to drawings or cartoons and I was thrilled to see Jennifer has taken the time to hunt down real and beautiful photos for her cards. Thanks, Jennifer!

Ok, so here's how you can enter to win:

Mandatory entry:

1. Leave a comment on this post and let me know which of these materials would be most useful to you.

Extra entries:
2. Like Counting Coconuts on Facebook and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.
3. Like Montessori Print Shop on Facebook and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.
4. Follow Counting Coconuts and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.
5. After today come back and leave me one comment per day on this post until the end of the giveaway.

*NOTE re: separate comments - each entry will be counted as a chance to win. If you put all of your entry requirements into just ONE comment, you'll only have ONE chance to win.

Montessori Print Shop is willing to ship (for free!) this 2-disc set to anyone, anywhere in the world!! This giveaway will end on Friday, April 8th at 9pm Atlantic Time.

Good luck, everyone!!

I feel like these materials are just what I have been searching for to use with my 5 and 2 year old. The Montessori math materials would be most helpful.
Thanks for running the giveaway!

T.A. said...

O.k...seriously, I could SOOOO use this. As a homeschooling mom, doing her very best to teach the montessori way...this would be invaluable!!! I would REALLY benefit from the math resources :)

These materials look amazing! Like you mentioned, it often takes hours to hunt down "real" pictures (as opposed to drawings). The sorting and classifying activities are what my little man finds most fun - but it all looks fabulous!

What an awesome give away! I think the geography section would really interest my 4 year old son since he loves learning about other states and countries. And the math section would be very useful for my 2 year old! Hope I win!!!

This is an incredible giveaway! As a Curriculum coach for teachers working with headstart children , this would be an amazing resource to share with them all. Thank you for the opportunity! You got a big LIKE on FB. Love your website and have shared it with many of the teaching staff.

Liz said...

What an amazing giveaway! I have 4 little kiddos & homeschool so this would get lots of use. I am fairly new to mostessori learning but am LOVING what I have found so far. The cost of startup has been a little overwhelming though. This would be such a boost. We would use ALL the materials but I am most excited about the math for the kiddos and the montessori teaching manuals for myself. THANKS for the opportunity to win this!!

This looks AWESOME!! I feel like the geography would benefit our family the most, seems to be one area that I do not have as many resources in.

phasejumper said...

This is AWESOME! I would definitely get good use out of the tanagrams, the french flashcards and the map materials (the rest, too, but in these areas I'm running thin)!

Sonia said...

WOW, what an amazing give away! I am a curriculum coach for teachers who work with headstart and Early headstart children. This would be an incredible resource to share with all of them! Thank you for the opportunity!

What a fantastic giveaway from Counting Coconuts and Montasorri Print Shop... Our class would definitely benefit from all of the aspects to this Cd-rom. We are in the process of implementing the montasorri approach. Exciting times!

zebaby said...

I love their site! I could use all of the materials, really. If I had to pick one, it would have to be the math because Montessori Math seems so amazingly well structured to me!

While all of it would be helpful, I'm really excited about the geography section - especially because of all of the recent natural disasters.

Hello! I appreciate all the insightful information that I receive on your blog. This is BY FAR the best I've seen. The Geography and Math would be the most helpful as we struggle with this area with the children.

tidbits said...

Hi, Mari - Ann :)
I am putting the original mandatory comment. I used to be a montessori teacher myself, and it is so so difficult to find pictures that are real life, finding time to crop them and putting it into cards.
I have 2 now under 2 and would love to use these materials for my children. The materials I would love to use the most are culture and math, I really value teaching children respect about others and facts about other countries. In many schools there is not enough teachings of cultural diversity and this is probably my favourite part about Montessori. I would also benefit from the Math curriculum as well, as my son loves counting and doing counting activities.
Thanks for having this giveaway!

Tracy said...

I don't have any of the Montessori Print Shop materials but I do have lots of reading cards from other curriculums so the other Montessori subjects would be a great addition to balance out what I do have.

Melanie said...

I'm just about to start my homeschooling journey with my 3 1/2 year old and am very interested in the Montessori way. These materials look fantastic!!! Really, I think all of it would be wonderful! Since he's working on letter and word recognition, the language series would be particularly great right now.

Amanda said...

My little girl is only 15 months old, so...I'm thinking EVERYTHING would be beneficial!!

Matt Jordan Tenesey Sawyer said...

What a generous lady! I just looked over all the goodies and saw she also has some language pictures in French. Not only would we benefit from all of it over the years but language now and the French would help exceedingly due to me having started teaching my almost 3 year old French and it's been very hard to find GOOD helpful sources... I could sure use a little help with it!

The Windy City Duo said...

My son is 17 months so I am sure that all of these materials would be great as we grow together. I would love to win these as I think that the teacher/parent resources would be especially useful to this mama.
