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!!

Greetings from Malaysia!

I am a teacher in an non-profit NGO for underprivileged youths, many of whom do not know how to speak English and do basic Math. We provide FREE EDUCATION for our full-time boarding students.

I also have a son who is just over a year old!

This whole CD would be an amazing resource for our students (we have more than 60 in Malaysia, and hundreds more in Cambodia, Timor Leste, Laos, Japan and Singapore).

In particular I love the Language Series and the Math!

Our website: www.sols247.org

This is wonderful! I am going to be homeschooling my 3 and 2 year old next year in the fall. My husband and I love the montessori method. The nearest school is over an hour away, that is why we have decided to homeschool them. I have been following your blog to start gathering ideas for next year. This would be perfect to get me started. Thanks!

Tim said...

just liked your FB page. My name is Brittany, but for some reason my gmail "name" is my husband, Tim...LOL.

Liked Montessori Print Shop on Facebook, I didnt know they had a page on there. Thanks!

Tim said...

I love this giveaway, We would find the language materials the most useful. With homeschooling my 3 year old next year, she is ready to start reading and I love the montessori language materials. Also the math items would be really useful. She has a hard time with math concepts and I absolutely think montessori materials will help her!

Tish said...

I could every single piece of this curriculum at my house but if I had to pick just one I would say the geography section would be very well loved around here as my kids love to learn about new places all the time. We take virtual fieldtrips so I am always looking for materials exactly like this. Thank you for the chance to win such an awesome gift!

C-Joy said...

What a fabulous giveaway! I would love to add to my geography collection :)

Faolmor said...

Which of those materials would be of most benefit to us?

All of them, of course! We are currently in the process of trying to set up a Montessori home-schooling environment for our daughter. To have such a wonderful resource available to her (and us!), right from the start, would really be a dream come true.

I've been so inspired by your site, though I only discovered it two days ago. I've spent the last few days hand-making new jobs for my daughter, and it has been great. But being cash-strapped, there's a limit to just how much we can provide her with.

That CD of materials would be invaluable.

Haley said...

I could use the language materials the most with my 3 year old and in the future with my infant!

C-Joy said...

I think I mistakenly commented twice, but I've made up for it by officially liking both Counting Coconuts AND Montessori Print Shop on FB :-P

Jennifer said...

These materials would be so helpful for my kids. We homeschool them and have an age range of 1 - 7. The older two would love the geography, and the 3 year old could really use the ones that work on the concepts of counting.

Would love to start other Montessori activities as well but unfortunately it is not so easy for me to find time for searching resources on the web. This material will be a great help and will save my time!

tidbits said...

Forgive me, I haven't seen my comments online so i am posting again.
It is my first time entering a giveaway and what a wonderful one to start with! THe materials I would love to use the most are Culture and math. As a former Montessori teacher one of my favourite parts of the curriculum is the culture curriculum, how it teaches so much to the child and how open ended it is to include so many different wonderful exercises. It is very important I think these days to have children know from young ages to respect others no matter where they are from.
I would also love the math materials as my child loves to do counting etc. As a montessori teacher I used to spend ages looking for appropriate pictures, like you Mari - Ann since I taught in a school we wanted the pictures to be as real as possible so sometimes it would take forever to crop pictures, I hope this post gets posted and goes through! Thanks YOU

All of the materials would be useful to me. My children attend a very small montessori school in Barbados and they have very limited supplies. I have already purchased several items from Montessori Print Shop and they've been very useful. Their school is always on the lookout for cheap/free supplies and materials.

Lulu said...

Wow, just wow!

I have admired the stuff at montessori print shop in the past but my son is that little bit too young for most of it now but I have things bookmarked for the future!!

I think the language cards/resources would be of most benefit for us because DS is already billingual but I will have to work hard to keep up his English skills once he is in the Japanese school system from age 3 or 4 (or possibly 6 if I keep him home a bit longer)

O'Brien said...

I'm meeting today with a few other moms to organize and begin our own homeschool co-op. We all have 2-3 yr old as well as younger ones. This material would help to give confidence to the few who just aren't sure they can teach their children themselves. Parents need to believe in ourselves and know that it is our privilege and duty to teach our children. This material would be VERY supportive of our baby co-op!!
