The AMS Conference is something we look forward to attending each year. This year was different. This year Holly and I attended as exhibitors and not as conference participants. This was the first time we placed our work in front of large masses of Montessorians. To say we were nervous about feedback would be an understatement. We were worried that our fellow Montessorians would say we missed the mark or that our work just wouldn't appeal to the very population we were trying to serve. Well, after four days of exhibiting, we can say without a doubt that we had nothing to worry about. The feedback we received ranged from compliments on the design of our cards to our use of quality images to represent science terms. Our passion for creating Montessori works is now in overdrive!
We made so many new friends too! Now we are heading home and going to get busy on all the requests we received!
Here's a small list of those requests we will be working on adding to our site:
-Animals of the continents
-Science cards for primary
-Additional language works for upper elementary
-Science experiments and research to match science cards
-More shirts!!! (Those are all ordered and on the way!)
Thank you to all who came by to see us and say hello! We truly enjoyed meeting everyone and having the opportunity to showcase our works. Be sure to check the website for new works that will be added. Also, feel free to email us with any feedback or requests. We love hearing from you!
