Give Away over at "What DID we do all day?"

My Boys Teacher is hosting a giveaway from Alison's Montessori.  The prize looks pretty neat.

I think it would be a neat thing to have, and the concept sounds good.  I always wonder about things which are sold from a Montessori store, but are not classic Montessori equipment.  It'd be interesting to hear some thoughts from a Montessori teacher.

  1. Good question :) I usually argue that the extras are unnecessary.

    I think in this case this might be good in a homeschool setting because so many homeschoolers don't own the botany cabinet which is the material on which they start using a similar stylus to trace around the leaf shapes. (part of the transition to paper) The botany cabinet is super expensive. This would be one of many ways to get them tracing with a pencil-like implement if you can't afford that cabinet.
