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!

Practical Life Organization
Every school has a different system as far as organizing their materials go. The practical life objects are materials that are used so often it needs to be accessible and easy for when you're switching out your works! Even when your not switching out practical life these objects come in handy for counting works, science activities...it's endless! One of my best friends, Mia, came up with this idea. These are plastic storage containers from IKEA. They are perfect for the job!
You can see everything so easily.
And they stack on each other for easy storage! I currently use about 9 of them to hold all my practical life objects but I could use more! These are one of the items at IKEA that you cannot mail order- unfortunately.
