Today I am presenting another product that follows the Montessori foundation and pedagogy of teaching, but is not a traditional Montessori Work. I created this series, Almost Montessori, as a way to help homeschoolers be able to benefit from a Montessori education without breaking the bank. Montessori materials are usually pretty expensive and this is my attempt to provide alternatives that maintain the core purpose and are Almost Montessori in their function.  So be watching for these posts! Today’s items that is in the “Almost Montessori” category is: Almost Montessori Fraction Circles.

Montessori Primary Guide has the Lesson and presentation for Fraction circles. And if you are visual, here is a video to help you see the fraction lesson in action.

Here is a lesson for older students for multiplying and dividing Fractions from NAMC. And here is a video of multiplying fractions for older students.  And here is a fraction division video for older students.

  1. Your blog looks so nice, pretty, and organized. 🙂 Nice job.

  2. This is so helpful.. I just ordered this set from Zulily and was reading your post about the oceans when this one popped-up as a recommendation. Thank you for such an organized way to put it up. Now I have a better idea of how to present this to my daughter without losing my time looking around the web, as always. Love your blog!

    • Thanks so much for the kind words and encouragement! I love Montessori and believe in this style of education. I think it can be intimidating for some to implement, especially homeschooling moms that have not had the luxury of seeing a Montessori school in action. I hope my posts will continue to help! Thank you for being part of our little community and a friend of our blog! ~Trish
