Home / Montessori Math / Linear and Skip Counting (thousand, hunderd and number chains) – Primary Montessori Math


Heather Brostron, primary directress (preschool/kindergarten teacher) at OakHaven Montessori School in O’Fallon, MO, demonstrates to a group of parents how the bead cabinet materials work. Preschool and kindergarten age children (in OakHaven’s primary program) have fun counting these chains, which also:

– consolidates their knowledge of counting
– gives further experience of linear and skip counting
– shows the difference between the squares and cubes of a number
– provides an indirect preparation for squaring and cubing of numbers
– indirectly prepares them for multiplication
