Q: How does membership in the club work?
Membership opens twice a year. When you join today you will log in to the members' area here on this site. Inside, you will find the first month's content along with your welcome bonuses. Every month that you remain a member, you will unlock a new month of content (thematic printables, seasonal printables, aritist stuy, HOKA guide and any loyalty bonuses). New content is released every 30 days. You will return to this site and log in to access all your content. You may download any printables you are interested in. Once they are saved on your hard drive, you may print and use at your convenience. Your credit card will automatically be charged every month until you cancel.
Many of our members have been with HOKA since its inception in August 2018. We look forward to welcoming you to the community!
Q: Do I get anything in the mail?
No. These are all digital products. We do provide a suggested list of books and supplementary resources that may be useful to use with the monthly printables.
Q: Is this a curriculum?
The resources we provide can be used to supplement and enrich your curriculum. However, the Club is NOT a stand-alone curriculum and should NOT be used as a replacement for your base materials. We are not providing an album and we will not show you how to present the classic Montessori materials or show you how to teach progressive skill development.
Q: I can just go to Pinterest and TpT to download printables. Why should I join?
You could, but how many hours do you spend searching and searching for the materials your students need? How long does it take you to figure out how to turn printables into hands-on activities? How much time do you spend looking up which books you can add to your activities? Which manipulatives?
Joining HOKA will help you take those hours back. Not only do we save you an enormous amount of time by putting together the printables, instructions, lists of ideas, and photos of hands-on activities, we offer you an opportunity to join a community where you can connect with us and other teachers and home-educators.
Q: What about distance learning? We will be teaching virtually for part of the school year.
We have a library of Boom Learning App games to help you during a temporary period of virtual learning. In addition, the Parent Planning Bonus Library contains many useful files that you can send to the parents of your students. They are specifically curated to be useful for parents. We have also adapted the copyright to our resources. Educators or child-care providers may send our PDFs to the parents of their students.
Please note: You may not share the resources with other educators. You may not share your account with other people. If you have questions about copyright, feel free to get in touch with us by emailing [email protected]
Q: I am a Montessori teacher. Is this right for me?
Between the four of us, we have more than 40 years of experience teaching using the Montessori method. While the printables are not exclusively created for Montessori classrooms, most can be easily adapted for use in a Montessori setting.
Q: I am a homeschooling parent. Can I use these activities?
Of course! You do not need to be a teacher at a school to use our printables. Yuliya uses these printables with her own children.
Q: Do I have to download all the content right away?
All of the printables will be stored on the website. There is no need to download all of them at once or fill up your hard drive. Plus, they will be nicely organized by month. Having everything in one place for you is what we aim for. Note: You will have access to the members area and all your content as long as you maintain your paid membership. If you decide to cancel, please make sure you download all your resources before you do so.
Q: What age or grade level are these printables targeting?
The resources are suitable for a range of skill levels for children aged of 3-6 years (preschool-first grade). Some resources can be used effectively in a lower elementary classroom. We do not recommend the use of these printables for children under the age of 3.
Q: Will there be breaks for the summer?
We will give you access to new printables all year long. New content will be released every 30 days, including over the summer. If you do not teach over the summer, you can download and prepare the resources for the future
Q: If I choose the annual membership do I pay for 10 months or 12 months?
This is a program for the whole year, 12 months. Each year, new printables will be added to those that are already in the club.
Q: If I purchase now will I be locked in at this special price?
YES! Your price will not change as long as you maintain your paid subscription, even if we raise the price for new members in the future.
Q: Can the printables be purchased separately?
Many of the printables can be found in our respective online stores. However, purchased separately they cost over $120/month. New printables we create are always released to HOKA members first and it can take a few months to a year for these printables to appear in our stores.
Q: I'm not sure if I want to get this. Can I get it next month?
We only open the doors to HOKA a couple of times each year. If you are unable to join us now, we will open again in August.
Q: What if I want to stop my membership and don't need any more awesome printables?
We get it! While we will be sad to see you go, you can cancel at any time! When you cancel, you will not be charged for any future months/years. Your access to the members area will end so please make sure to download your content before you cancel.
