Montessori Math Materials offer an engaging, practical method to learning mathematics for children of all ages. Montessori Math Materials include manipulatives such as counting rods, number cards, beads, coins, and other objects that allow students to explore the relationships between numbers and quantities.
With these materials, teachers can create meaningful activities that help students learn foundational skills like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in an interactive environment.
By using Montessori Math Materials in their classrooms or homeschools settings, parents and educators can give their children the tools they need to become successful mathematicians! In this post, I am going to be sharing with you the importance of children using hands-on Montessori Math materials in the early years of development.
Montessori Math Materials strengthen Concrete Learning vs Abstract Learning
As you may know, about 90% of children are tactile or kinesthetic learners. That means that they learn best by moving and touching. That is why the Montessori Method is so successful in child education. With Dr. Maria Montessori’s keen observations of children, she discovered this and prepared an environment that was way ahead of its time.
Montessori Math Materials, as most Montessori materials, provide a fun and hands-on approach to learning mathematics. These materials are designed to help children develop an understanding of basic math concepts in a creative and engaging way. They are constantly strengthening their concrete learning in the early developmental years (birth until about 6 years of age) as opposed to abstract learning, which comes later.
These materials provide an important foundation for concrete learning in the early years of development because they are hands-on, tangible, manipulative. Children are able to explore, tinker with and discover using materials made out of natural wood, beads, glass, cloth and other natural materials.
The Benefits of Montessori Maths Materials in Early Years
In the early years, children learn best when they are able to explore and manipulate their environment. Montessori math materials give children this opportunity by providing them with concrete objects that help them understand abstract concepts.
Additionally, working with these materials can help students develop important skills like problem solving and critical thinking. Overall, the use of Montessori math materials is an effective way for educators to support early learning in mathematics while also fostering a creative and interactive learning environment!
It is important to create and set up a beautiful and appealing Montessori environment (classroom) that invites children to explore and provokes children to use the hands-on materials. Don’t worry, abstract (mental) learning will come; we just need to give children a more solid foundation with concrete learning first.
I go more in depth on this topic inside The Montessori Way Foundations Framework, which can be greatly beneficial for you, especially if you are interested in taking your Montessori journey seriously.
Montessori Math Intimidation
I have been trained in the Montessori philosophy, I have taught in Montessori schools and have been coaching and training others in The Montessori Method and what I keep hearing over and over is that Montessori Math is the most intimidating subject to tackle.
Many Montessori Guides (teachers) are extremely apprehensive about not grasping the concept for each Math work. And not only that; they are afraid of not teaching it right to the child during the Lesson Presentation. If that is you as well, I completely understand. I have been there and have felt the same way.
Please don’t fret. I am here to help. Here’s another time where The Montessori Way Foundations Framework comes in handy for you in a BIG way. In it, I teach you the foundations of Math works and provide you with lesson plans, printable materials, lesson demonstrations and lesson presentations!
