Mars (Instagram/website) was a Montessori educator and owned her own school and now homeschools her daughter Cara. I asked Mars if I could interview her daughter Cara about their Montessori homeschooling and we spoke for over an hour! I'm sure you'll enjoy this conversation as much as I did. At the end Mars also talks about how she supports Cara's learning and what "successful" homeschooling looks like to them.Links from the episodeHow to Save a Planet - podcast about climate changeGardener of the Sea: A Story About Nida CalumpongCharlotte MasonFor Nature Stories for Young Readers, we have the Animal Life.

I work as a teacher in a public elementary school in Canada and would love to have a better understanding of the Montessori approach to early numeracy and literacy learning. I am specifically looking for resources for students in the 3-6 range. Thanks!
