Golden Beads and Operations
The mother of all Montessori math kits. This kit lays the foundation for all the math that's to come! The golden beads introduce the decimal system and the four operations in a concrete and playful way. It includes everything you need, down to the lesson presentations, videos, printable task cards, word problems, and more. This kit isn't only for the primary child, but great for the elementary child who is ready to explore operations at a deeper level and fully master them. Appropriate for ages 4 and above. Ready to ship.
All Materials Included
The kits come with all the materials you could possibly need on this journey. Stop wasting your time walking in circles trying to figure out where you should buy expensive materials, trying to figure out what you will need exactly and let us take care of it for you. Every kit comes with materials that are designed with the home environment in mind.
Video & Picture Lesson Guides
Put the days of trying to figure out how to present a lesson behind you. We know how much time it takes to wade through the plethora of content online showing you how to use materials With the kits, you get access to a complete library of lessons, simplified for you to easily understand and implement, so that you can spend more time with your kids instead of with your albums.
You don't have to figure all this out on your own. You'll have access to office hours and live sessions with a Mathessori Number Wizard who will answer your questions and be your personal guide. Plus, you will also have the opportunity to have a one-on-one session to get you started. It takes a village to educate a child!
What's included in the kit?
Wooden Thousand Cubes
These are all the wooden cubes you will need to get through all the four operations and exchange games
Wooden Hundred Squares
"Do I really need that many hundred squares?" you may ask... Why, yes, you do, actually. The kit comes with all the hundred squares you will need to work with all four operations. Tray included.
An integral part of the decimal system! Includes all the unit beads you will need plus extras, just because they get lost so easily! We recommend storing them in a plastic box with a latch lid.
(wooden bowl not included)
Ten bars - matches the rest of the beads in the kit. Comes with box (and lid)
The beloved stamp game. Instead of a printable or DIY version, we decided to include the actual stamp game because this is one material that will get a ton of use throughout primary AND elementary.
Beaded Thousand Cube
This beautiful thousand cube is used in the initial presentations, a solid and concrete introduction to the decimal system.
Beaded Hundred Squares
Used for the preliminary lessons on the introduction to the golden beads, the kit comes with a set of 10 beaded hundred squares
Large and Small Number Cards
A compact version of the large and small number cards, this set comes with storage pouches. The cards will come printed on cardstock and will need to be cut and laminated (if you prefer).
This is a dry erase version of the dot game and is used for extra addition practice. Simple, compact, and reusable! The member's portal also includes printable versions, if you prefer!
Stamp Game Papers
Again, reusable! I mean, we love these! Less printing for you to do (but if you really want it printed, the member's portal has it all!).
