Our First Book!
We are excited to include the first book published by Montessori By Mom. Movement and Motion is full of “Fun Activities For Active Kids.” Montessori teachers and education experts share some of their favorite activities for use in the classroom, on the playground, and at home. Active play is important to develop gross motor skills and coordination… plus it helps get the wiggles out! This Toolbox has a great balance of both outdoor and indoor activities.
The Movement and Motion Toolbox originally came with a set of SO Awesome Go! Cards. Unfortunately, SO Awesome went out of business and we are no longer able to include the Go! Cards in the Toolbox. Instead, we have replaced them with a wonderful set of Montessori Early Readers, written by a Montessori teacher. Your Toolbox will come with either set one or set two.
These readers are written with simple phonetic words to help the early reader. They follow the Montessori pink, blue, green series that is often found in classrooms. We think this is a good alternative and provides many additional activities. We also included our own laminated Montessori grammar cards for a hands on experience and help in learning grammar.
Walking The Line
This activity is explained in depth in out book “Movement and Motion.” The Toolbox includes a variety of materials to extend this classic Montessori activity. Children will love the beautiful brass bell, the small wooden spoon, and cute little eggs.
Activity Guide Format:
Besides the instruction videos, this Toolbox comes with a more comprehensive activity guide that lists and describes the 30+ activities included in this Toolbox! Now parents have a reference to use when they are away from the computer.
Finally, this Toolbox has everything you need (including tape and extra parts) to make 3 sled kites. These are easy to fly in almost no wind and can be decorated by your child before assembly. We also help you explain how a kite flies.

Each Toolbox is carefully planned to contain a balanced blend of important qualities. Movement and Motion is:
Quality: Durable, professional grade, or name brand
