The little blogging business of mine is a place of dreams...yet not always ones supported by the time to make those dreams reality. I have a physical reality that sometimes limits what I can do virtually. My first and primary vocation will always be my family. Over the last few years, however, I have often thought how much nicer it would be to self- host my digital curriculum.
I'm excited to announce that starting today, all new materials will be available first and in some cases exclusively in the brand new Work and Play, Day by Day digital store!
Not only that, but the first of series of new products is already available in the Fall Collection!
Montessori Games to Play, our highly popular free ebook available to all email subscribers, is now available in a brand-new Fall Edition! With activities for practical life, science, math and more, the new ebook will provide you with a five fall themed Montessori-inspired activities designed to get your family outside and enjoying one of the most beautiful seasons of the year (at least here in the Midwest). You can also check out all of the other great fall resources such as Pin Punching, Graphing, and Patterning. Buy individually, or buy all three and save!
What now? Now I will continue transferring, updating, and expanding each of my collections. This is truthfully no small job, but its an ideal one for working in short bursts- perfect for a busy mom! I'm also working on additional editions of Montessori Games to Play. I think these ebooks are a great way to bring easily implementable Montessori philosophy to just about any homeschooling style. I'm already working on an Advent edition and plan to give our newsletter subscribers a sneak peek in the coming weeks. (Subscribe here so you don't miss out!) I appreciate your patience as I continue all of the updates and work out any of the (inevitable) kinks that arise.
I am grateful to all of you who supported our small business on Teachers Pay Teachers. For the time being, that storefront will remain as is but my focus will shift to the self hosted venue. I appreciate all of the collaboration and community that I built with fellow Montessori teachers and makers through TPT. Not only did they teach me the ins and outs of digital curriculum sales, they were the first to support my new endeavor and encourage me to step out in faith.
Before I forget! You may have noticed the blog has had a bit of a facelift of its own! If you are looking for the store (or another page) in the future, click the three little green lines in the upper right hand corner of the web version and the menu will pop right up for you. I've also removed most of the sidebar ad space. This is taking a bit of a leap of faith to shift my income focus from advertising to product sales, but I know with your support we can make it happen! Thank you!
I'd love to have all of my long-time readers and new friends to head over and let me know what you think of the new store. What do you want to see? I'm excited to hear what you think!
Coming Soon! The new password protected free members-only area is going to be amazing and feature support resources across all of the collections and subject areas. You won't want to miss it!
