Subtraction with a snake, anyone? Montessori materials are famous for their interesting and catching concepts, correctness, involving and meaningful colours and texture...all this to capture the interest of the child and present an abstract concept that has been carefully turned into its concrete form.
In this session we will trace how Montessori children learn to put together, take away, multiply and share equally using a set of carefully designed materials. We will also investigate the concept of working with less than a whole— an easy and engaging concept of fractions.
Join us for the last workshop of 2016.
