Setting up a Montessori upper elementary classroom for the first time can seem pretty overwhelming. I was looking through the latest Nienhuis flier that came in the mail recently, and I am always amazed by the beautiful upper elementary Montessori materials they provide. However, for many Montessori classrooms, costs can be prohibitive.

For our NAMC Upper Elementary (9-12) Diploma Program students, as well as new Montessori teachers who may be setting up a Montessori upper elementary classroom and looking for some guidance as to where to begin with limited funds, here are a few suggestions that I hope will help.
