Understanding and recognizing the the colors and quantities of the Bead Stair is one of the foundational math lessons in a Montessori classroom. These booklets serve as an extension activity for children who have worked with the concrete bead materials. They save teachers like you loads of time because they're super easy to prepare, and they reinforce one-to-one correspondence for your students as they count and color the bead bars from one to nine.
You get five different versions to differentiate your instruction or for providing extra practice. Your students will be much more engaged than if they were doing the same activity on a boring worksheet.
Note that number 10 is addressed in the Golden Bead Booklets and 11–19 are introduced in the Teens Booklets.
