Description

What do we use the Short Bead Chains for?

The Short Bead Chains and Rack are part of Montessori mathematics curriculum. The exercises for the Short Bead Chains prepare the child for multiplication, as they ‘skip-count’ through the bead chains.

Objectives of using the Chains

This lesson promotes order; and sequencing; as well as fine, and gross motor muscle development. Furthermore, it indirectly helps prepare the Child to understand the process of squaring numbers.

Contents of the Short Bead Chains and Rack

  • a solid, wooden rack to hold the Short Bead Chains
  • a different colour bead chain for each number 1 – 10

Children indirectly memorise the colours to the number sequencing, so they will instinctively know that the pink bead stair have 3 beads.  This aids their learning process.

Dimensions

46 cm x 12 cm x 9.5 cm / ( 18″ x 4¾” x 3¾” )

One of the attractions to the Montessori Method is the extensive use of wood.

We use several types of wood, sourced from renewable sources, in the production of our Montessori Materials.

  • Solid beechwood for cylinder blocks, pink towers, dressing frames and brown stairs.
  • Birchply for trays, holders and animal and botany puzzles.
  • MDF for puzzle maps
  • Pineply for boxes and containers

 

We ensure that the coatings and inks used are not only eco-friendly, but also non-toxic.

Our wooden products are manufactured by responsible partner factories both locally and abroad and ensure that fair labour practices are adopted.

Care instructions for Childrens House Wooden Materials:

  • If wooden products are exposed to liquids, wipe dry as quickly as possible.
  • Most of the surfaces can be wiped with a damp cloth if exposed to dirt or grime.
  • Avoid leaving any of our wooden product in direct sunlight, as it may warp certain woods and/ or the coating may fade over time.
