This is a work in progress.

I am going to create a list of Montessori math video links. They are all from YouTube. I hope it is useful.

Montessori "what is math" video:

The above is a google search of homemade Montessori math materials. Remember to also click on the images tab when doing a google search - to get visual ideas.

Here are some preschool ideas (many homemade):

These are beginning math concepts of what numbers are and counting:

For the sandpaper numbers, I used felt instead. My kids hated the feel of sandpaper. When you do the sandpaper lesson

I had a container (flat, low sides, decent size) with colored or plain sand in it. I then had the kids write the numbers in it.

My kids did a lot of artsy type projects related to learning numbers.

You can take babyfood jars (color the lids and put a number on each one) and then have the kids put that many marbles (or any small object) in each corresponding jar. Then they can stack them in order (visually).

Warning: This iPad enjoys auto correcting into jibberish. I have three kids 17, 10.5 and 9 yrs old. This mama works, homeschools, and explores life + varied interests.

I know the Montessori method has really helped ds pick up on his numbers, even addition and subtraction.
