A while back a few sisters asked about ways to become familar with Montessori Education and how it can be applied in a home school setting insha'Allah. I don't know if I mentioned it then, but there is an excellent book that I saw a few months back that taught parents just that: how to home school using the Montessori Method insha'Allah.
I went back to the library a few days ago in search of that book thinking of the sisters who had made that inquiry. Here is the book insha'Allah:
This book is an excellent resource that both introduces parents to the Montessori Method and teaches the parent how to teach their child using this method insha'Allah. There are lessons provided (with instructions about how to teach the lesson) and the author includes a section that shows parents how to easily make many of the materials used in Montessori education. Best of all, the book is short alhamdulillah, only 110 pages, including appendices and introduction.
The next time you're at the library insha'Allah: Check it out insha'Allah.
