This blog is for me and my friends to share our original curriculum ideas meant for the Montessori classroom. We've gotten so many ideas from others we wanted to give back to that huge community out there!

Color Box 3 Layout Mat
This is something I've wanted to make forever! I found that every time a child did color box 3 it was very tricky for them to set out the tablets in the circular pattern. So I made this out of felt! Super simple and easy! Felt, felt glue, and a dinner plate to trace for the circle! At our school we have a small crystal globe (that my director picked up from a thrift store) that we can put in the center. You could place your Montessori globe, or get a fun crystal from Michaels or other craft store, in the center just to beautify it! As soon as school starts up again I'll get a picture of it with all the color tablets laid out!
