I love Karen's course! I have been hoping to be able to take it at some point, but that just hasn't happened yet! I would love to be able to take the course! I've got 3 kiddos who could totally benefit from my taking this. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

I follow you in Google Reader; is that what you meant? Any way, I'd love to win this! I do Montessori at home with my daughter (and will in a few years with my son), but I'm having a hard time translating what I've learned of Montessori in the classroom into Montessori at home. jenbecker@gmail.com

Hi, I am full time SAHM with a teaching degree. Montessori techniques always intrigued me and when I had my LO I began researching. The more I learn...the more I realize I need to learn. Maria Montessori was a genius and I also want to follow in her footsteps to empower small children with the tools to discover and explore. Not only will training help me teach my son, I could go on to use the training when I go back to work. Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win this!

Em said...

Well, I would LOVE to win the course because I'm planning to become a Montessori teacher! I would love to have a course ahead of time so I can use it in the the classroom setting as I work in a Montessori Charter School as an Assistant Teacher. I have had a few lessons, but this would be really wonderful.

Moitreyee I don't feel like I have very many tips yet. lol :) I just started my blog in Nov. and between 3 little ones, homeschooling, and holiday's I haven't really got to post too much yet. Just trying to find the time to post is my issue. :) I personally like to find great links on other people's blogs, and of course free pdf Montessori downloads are a fantastic find for any blog. :) It's a joy to see how other people homeschool their children. Together our ideas are ENDLESS. :) Good luck in the giveaway! Blessings, Mamabusybee

Lulu said...

I am very new to learning about montessori and have just started to research it more to do things with my 13 month old at home.

Would love to do a course to help me help my little one(s) more!

I was an early childhood teacher before marriage and kids here in Japan.

ylan_roy said...

Hi there! I just became a follower! Thanks for your wonderful and joyful work. As far as the Montessori class, I would love to take it. I spent 4 months in a Montessori preschool over 10 years ago, and that experienced enriched my teaching so much. I am now a Head Start PreK teacher, and this would be a blessing to receive.

LittleTots said...

I am totally new to all this blogging business! So not sure If I am doing this right -
I would SO love to do this course, my mum trained as a Montessori Teacher but had an tragic accident, so did not complete it. I helped her complete a lot of her coursework (by typing it up for her), I look after 10 children in a home setting as a childminder.
I can be contacted on ruxlee@btinternet.com, I donot have a blog :( Kind regards Hayley

Wendy said...

What a great opportunity!!
You know I ~love~ looking through your binders, and I've bought a few of the books you've recommended. Montessori is such a great, gentle, effective way to teach!

Hippie4ever said...

GFC follow. I would love to win. I'm not sure the exact method I'll be using with my son...a little eclectic probably. I'd love some new material :) Thank you.

Thanks for posting about this on Montessori By Hand! I just signed up to follow your blog. I have two little girls that I have been trying to use Montessori ideas with, but the training would be SO helpful!

I don't just *want* Karen's course: I *need* Karen's course. I live in England where exciting legislation means that people can start setting up their own small schools and still get public money for doing it. Myself and my friend, who is Montessori trained, want to set up the only free Montessori school in our area. I'm a qualfied secondary school teacher, however, there's no doubt that I would be far more effective if I had Montessori training under my belt. Courses over here are both time-consuming and expensive, so without Karen's course, I won't be able to realise this dream. To contact me, should I be lucky enough to win, use my blog address.

Oooh; I would so love to win this! I am interested in learning as much about Montessori education as possible, but there is just no way I could afford to pay out-of-pocket to take a class. (I didn't know there were online options available, either, 'til now.) My little ones would benefit - as would the little ones of others I talk to about homeschooling.

Lei said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I have 3 children 6, 4 and 2 who will all benefit from Karen's course. Love her and from what i have gathered from those who took her course, it was very comprehensive and helpful to parents like me who have decided to homeschool their children.


Beth said...

I would be happy for an opportunity to get more training in Montessori. I'm homeschooling my two children, ages 5 and 2.

I have been reading all the books I can about the Montessori Method since my son was 4 months old (he is now 37 months old). I have implemented as much as I can, but I know that I need actual training and albums to implement Montessori more correctly/fully into our daily life/ home preschool with him.

mamatotwo said...

I would like to put into everyday life (and not just to supplement my kids' education) what I will learn and receive in this training. I am really looking forward to the lectures that she will be doing.
