Montessori Math is a one-of-a-kind hands-on approach to teaching mathematics that is intended to spark a child’s innate curiosity and love of numbers. Montessori Math, in contrast to typical teaching approaches, invites children to study mathematical ideas at their own pace and via self-discovery. This episode will go over how to teach addition using the Montessori Method.
The Montessori philosophy fosters a joyful and engaging learning experience that can promote a profound, long-lasting comprehension of mathematical principles, making ordinary tasks like addition feel fascinating to the child.

In this training, we will be discussing how to teach addition using the Montessori Method.
Do it in the right order
The use of concrete items is the first step in teaching addition the Montessori way. The use of physical learning aids like as number rods, beads, or spindles is emphasized in Montessori Math. For example, to demonstrate the addition of 2 and 3, you would first give the youngster two distinct rods or bead bars, one representing 2 and the other representing 3.
Introduce visual representations of addition, such as number lines or ten frames, once the pupil is comfortable with concrete objects. This will aid in the formation of a mental bridge between abstract notions and real-world examples.
The next step is to have your kids start practicing math facts. And also focus on memorizing math facts with the information they’ve learnt so far. Ask them simple questions like “what is 2 plus 3?” and have them point out the answer with their fingers. Move on to more challenging math facts and equations as they progress.

As Montessori parents, our role transforms from that of a director to that of a guide, providing help and tools as needed but ultimately allowing the child to lead their education. That is why I want to underscore the importance of Montessori parenting.
