One of the earliest skills the Montessori Child learns, is that of sequencing.  By learning to sequence, the Child develops the ability to understand; and arrange purposeful patterns of actions; behaviours, ideas or thoughts.  By learning to count, the Child begins with a concrete product; such as the golden beads; before taking things to the next level, that of abstract numbers.

The mat for bead chains of 1000, is an essential resource in this process.  It is long enough to accommodate one hundred bead chains; of ten golden beads each; in one unbroken chain.  The mat can also be used for the other longer bead chains from the bead cabinet.  Working independently, the Child lays the mat on the classroom floor; or down a long passage; and then they lay the bead chains on top.  They then use printed arrows to count off the number of units that they are working with, and mark the divisions.
