|Welcome to Montessori Album! We've been online for over ten years (yay!), but unfortunately we've had a lot of spam accounts over time. We didn't have a good way of sorting them out...so took the extreme measure of wiping everything before November 2019.|
We're so sorry! We've setup measures to prevent such drastic action again. Please recreate your account if it doesn't work.
|Math - Linear Counting|
|Age||4 - 4.5|
|Materials||1-9 bead stair|
9 ten bars
This activity teaches the child the names of the numbers 11-19.
- Take a 1-9 bead stair and 9 ten bars to a mat or table. If at a table, you will need a table mat so the beads don't roll away.
- Next step
- "This is eleven."
- Make 12 and 13 in the same way and do a three period lesson.
- Once the child has learned 11, 12, and 13 continue on until all the amounts are learned.
