A Basic Montessori list of supplies for Preschoolers
If you are just starting out in Montessori you may be overwhelmed by the cost of supplies. Here is a list of the essentials to get you by while you build your Preschool Montessori supply closet (some you may already have):
Sand Paper Letters and Numbers
Play dishes- perfect for practical life activities- pouring, setting tables etc..
Baskets of nature items (rocks, sea shells) for classifying
Sensory Touch boards (satin, wool, cotton, wood)
Start with these basics as you continue to add to your Montessori shelves.
