Starting with the numbers 1-10, children who are ready to do so will progress to teen numbers, before constructing and counting in 10’s, 100’s etc. Towards the end of the school year many will be working with simple addition and subtraction- as you can see in the photo. Mathematics is based on concepts which are easily demonstrated using the specially designed Mathematics Materials. Children at this age are in the Absorbent Period, a time when they have a great capacity and love of learning. Each child moves at their own pace in our Montessori and are expertly guided and encouraged by their Teachers.
