Montessori Math for 1st Through 3rd Graders
In this class, we will explore many Montessori math concepts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, place value, counting money and more) using the abacus, math strip boards, counting beads and other hands-on materials.
US Grade 1 - 3
Learners will be introduced and shown how to use several hands-on Montessori math methods. We will cover how to use the beads on the abacus for addition and subtraction. Learners will also learn how to translate numbers (on worksheets) into counting beads and manipulate them for the purpose of adding. Some weeks will involve place value, which your learner will visually and tangibly manipulate different learning materials to read double digit, triple digit, and quadruple digit numbers. We...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to incorporate Montessori math methods into everyday math lessons. The learner's knowledge of problem solving, categorizing, making comparisons and patterns will have increased. The learners will be able to determine which learning style works best for them.
Associates degree in Early Childhood Education and Bachelor's degree in Education Master's degree in Finance and Global Studies I have taken several math for teacher training courses and spent one full year studying and implementing the Montessori method simultaneously, while being an early childhood educator. During those trainings, I learned how to create math themed lessons that combined analyzation, hypotheses development, and critical thinking skills. Following those trainings, I used the Montessori math skills to teach students ages 2-8 in a homeschool co-op program. I also tutored children aged 7-10 years old and created activities for other teachers to access for children aged 3-6 years.
Learners will need the following supplies to participate in various lessons: Pencils, blank sheets of paper, ruler (12in), objects of various sizes - within 12 inches (toys, blocks, writing or kitchen utensils, etc.) and small objects (beans, decorative beads, buttons, or cotton balls). Index cards with numbers 0-9 and small dots to represent each quantity, written on separate index cards. Please make sure the index card is turned vertically or short side at the top, before writing the number. For example, turn the index card vertically and using a bold, black marker, fill the entire blank side of the index card with the number "0/zero." On the back of the card, leave it blank to represent the quantity "0/zero." Continue writing the numbers "1-9" on individual index cards, for a complete set of 10 cards.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
On the learner supply list, your child will need a ruler (12in), objects of various sizes - within 12 inches (toys, blocks, writing or kitchen utensils, etc.) and small objects for counting (beans, decorative beads, buttons, or cotton balls), along with a few other materials. Please note that some of these items are considered choking hazards or if used inappropriately, they can be harmful. Please talk to your child about the proper use of the materials prior to each class. I will, also, briefly share some class rules regarding the expected use of the materials before each lesson. Thank you in advance.
I will provide a one-page mathematical worksheet for each topic through the shared-screen option of the classroom. Learners who are enrolled in the class will gain access to these worksheets via share-screen, during class.
