Curious about the Montessori Math Activities? I thought a useful place to start would be to share the sequence of Montessori Math activities & lessons that I learned in my program. Keep in mind that this is a PATH, not linear. Some lessons (Numeration and Place Value) are given in order, while others (Linear Counting and Math Facts) can be given and practiced by the child simultaneously.

Hi! I’m just sooo in love with your blog!

But please! could you help me to see the pre-counting activities, and the activities for “readiness for numerals”? I would be so grateful!

Hi there, Daniela,

This link is a great start for pre-reading activities >> https://carrotsareorange.com/montessori-pre-reading/

Let me know how it is going!

There is nothing on the section “Before Numbers”, which left me lost in translation because now I can’t begin? What is a good age to introduce this?

Thank you..

Marnie Craycroft says

Ahh! Such a good question. I will update the post to elaborate but in the meantime, use a salt tray to trace numbers, read about numbers, do simple patterns, and so on. This post on early math activities should help, too!

I’m a bit confused. Does this mean the Golden Bead material and place value is introduced before linear counting and the teens and tens boards?

Marnie Craycroft says

Great question about Montessori math! It isn’t consecutive like the other areas. It is more like a math “path” with lines taking the child where they need to go. Lessons in different areas can be done simultaneously. Does that make sense?
