I absolutely love the books and spent hours pouring over each “season.” I was quite dismayed when my copy of “Fall” was lost by the teacher to whom it was lent. Then I remembered I could buy them individually – THANKS BIG TIME! So, now I’m getting an entire set for our new Kindergarten teacher, who is thrilled to have her own set. Thanks for creating such an in-depth, easy to follow, and invaluable resource that I know we will be using for years to come. Maggie, Canada

I love your Guide books. It has made things so much easier for my this year. I am in my 5th year of teaching and this has helped me to enjoy my classroom so much more. Most grateful, Donna

Thanks so much Gini! I spent all yesterday reading through your guides and supplement. I love your curriculum. I am so pleased with it and will make sure to recommend it to other teachers. My only problem is deciding which parts to leave out because it all sounds so wonderful!
Have a blessed day! Christy

Hi, we are a homeschooling family. I ordered the complete package and have only been using it for 2 days and it is FANTASTIC!!! I could never pinpoint what I didn't like about other curricula I saw others using, only that I kept saying to myself, "My kids just don't learn that way, they need hands on, interesting information." I have pretty much been teaching them in Montessori form for 2 years but had to come up with topics, book lists, and art projects all on my own each week. Your guides really help with our daily "lessons" and save me a ton of time. The Supplement is very useful too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I will recommend you to others. Heather

I look forward to receiving the curriculum. I am a long time Montessori teacher and trainer. I ran across your summer plans in our school library. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing your ideas! Paula

Gini - I received my order today and your materials are MUCH more than I expected! I am the grandmother of 17 month old triplet boys, and I would like to home/preschool them when they are a little older. The guides are just what I need to get the whole process going! Thank you.
Sincerely, Lois

Thank you for all of the spirit and work that went into the creation of your four Guides to the Montessori Classroom! Kimberly

Thank you! I received my shipment today. It is better than I could have anticipated. My 4-year-old and I have already done several yoga poses and I have been absorbing the art book all day. Thank you and Take Care, Carrieann

I just wanted to leave you feedback about your guides. I used them in my AMI primary classroom and now they still prove useful at home with my child. I want to thank you for putting together such excellent guides! :) Kim

To say I'm enthralled with your books is an understatement! They're wonderful, rich resources! With gratitude and appreciation, Barbara

I was a regular classroom teacher for 5 years, and I am now a stay at home mom with a 2.8 year old. There aren’t many preschool options around here, and we weren’t impressed with the local Montessori school, so I am going to give teaching her at home a try, and I really needed a guide! I think the Yoga and the other additions you made are a really nice touch, and I am very excited! Thanks again, Karen

Hi Gini,
Since receiving the guides I have used them repeatedly to help structure our theme progression and daily discussions here at school. I believe that the elementary training covers this progression, but I find my primary training lacking. The guides are well ordered and useful. I want to thank you for making all of our work much easier and purposeful and for giving many access to the Montessori way. The guides are priceless and I think you under charge. I really appreciate you and even though I don’t know you personally, I think of you every time I use the guide. Best, Donna

Hi, I LOVE your guides. I'd never seen them before and now that I'm at a new school, I was thrilled to discover three of the four editions on the shelves! I always enjoyed coming up w/ creative extensions--and you are amazing. I am VERY disappointed that the school's Fall edition is missing. Could I just buy that one? Looking at the index, it fits in perfectly w/ what I was already planning and I'd love to benefit from your ideas... how do I order it - and get it ASAP?? Thank you! Tracy

Hi ya Gini,
Just wanted to send a (belated) note so let you know how happy I am with the Montessori materials you sent me. I work as a nanny but have been Montessori trained and am delighted to be able to implement your programe with the education of life for the 3 year old I look after. One of the things I love so much about Montessori is that it can be used anywhere in all sorts of situations. Thus me using it on a one on one basis with the 3 year old girl I nanny for is fantastic. She knows all her colours including grading of them, numbers and "abc's" and has just started making simple 3 letter words . . . all while learning to be independent and enjoying the experience of life and learning from it . . . thanks again for your wonderful programme . . .it's very easy to follow and complements my own resourses. It's a joy to use!
Cheers, Leonie, Australia

Dear Gini,
I ordered your manuals earlier this year. I can not tell you how pleased my staff and I are with them. They are the most comprehensive manuals I have ever seen. They are chock full of excellent ideas as well as inspirational. I love how you capture the essence of Maria Montessori’s spiritual aims for Early Childhood Education. Maryann

I recently bought your curriculum and must tell you, it's the most comprehensive and fantastic thing ever! Between the incredibly well thought out lessons and the very thorough reading lists, I have enough ideas going to fuel me for the next 10 years! You should be very, very proud of this curriculum, it speaks volumes about the diligence and caring of the person who wrote it. Alison

Gini,
I received the package yesterday. I have only skimmed through "Fall" and already love it! It took me a long time to decide to buy these guides because I am on a really tight budget and was afraid of making a mistake. Turns out they are exactly what I was looking for!!! Thank you so much. Aida

Dear Ms. Gini,
Thank you so very much. The supplement and art arrived very quickly. I've been able to set up the classroom and make some of the new works for September's guide. Thanks for taking the time to put together the curriculum guides in such an easy to understand order. It really made setting up the areas quick and easy. Sincerely, Cheryl

Hi Gini,
We are using the books for our Preschool and Kindergarten and absolutely love them, they are such a welcome relief at the end of the day when we plan for the 'morrow. Before, we would sit around, scratching our head, and then running around all night getting things ready! Huge thanks, Sharlene

I just wanted to tell you how much we are enjoying using your Fall curriculum suggestions. I've been a Montessori guide for 25 years and your book gives me lots of fresh, new activities! Very well thought out and lots of fun! I look forward to purchasing the Winter guide. Many thanks. Mary

Gini,
Thanks for the wonderful classroom guide. It’s what I’ve been looking for for years. I did my Montessori training 30 years ago and have gathered many good ideas from fellow teachers & my own creativity, but your manuals are a ~
Hello Gini,
I’ve received my books and am so delighted with the books. It has become like a spiritual reading for me. I’m thrilled with your ideas and helpful suggestions. As I acquaint myself with the books I will be in touch with you. Wishing you the best with this endeavor. Marilyn

I have all four of your books and LOVE them. As a new Montessori teacher, what order to present various areas of the curriculum was my greatest concern. You’ve been a tremendous help! Thanks for the terrific work! Dru

Hi Gini,
I just want to tell you how much I LOVE the lesson plan books. They are so helpful, well thought out, beautifully designed. Lots of ideas that cover the entire Montessori curriculum. It must have taken you a lot of time to put together. I appreciate that you did this project. It will make my school year easier. I have been teaching Montessori for 6 years and I am really excited about teaching this year. Like you said, it will allow teachers more time with family, friends, and the things that nourish the spirit. Denise
