Montessori Math – Numbers to Ten

The foundation of math is numbers to ten. The exercises in this section must be firmly rooted in the child before continuing through the math materials. The child learns the names of the numbers and the fact that each number represents a certain quantity. The child learns to associate the language, written symbol, and quantity of each number from 0 to 9. Sensorially, he is shown even and odd numbers, as well, the child learns to fix a number in his mind and remember it after a long period of time.

Montessori Preliminary Language

The Montessori preliminary exercises give the child the vocabulary for objects in the immediate environment. It is important to use the correct terminology and clear pronunciation when speaking to the children. During the first year (2 to 3 years of age) in the Casa/Primary class, sound games, classified cards, story books and poetry play a very important role in the development of language. They teach the child to listen carefully to the sounds that make up words, how to enunciate correctly and how to use the words in the correct context.
