According to Maria Montessori, the child from a very young age is equipped with an absorbent mind. As a new Kindergarten teacher, I recognize that the students I have the opportunity to teach have a mind that can quickly learn new concepts, absorbing the information and filing it away for later use. This age is a critical time to teach students the fundamental building blocks in which they will use the rest of their educational lives. Being able to tap into a child’s absorbent mind, curiosities, and interests will help to foster a lifelong love for learning. Montessori and I believe that children learn through trial and error, exploration, their intrinsic interest to try new things and learn through doing instead of being passive in the classroom. Montessori materials are specially designed for children for the purpose of children to explore and learn. For young learners, math is an abstract concept. However, these hands-on mathematics materials will greatly help my students learn and gain a concrete understanding of the fundamentals of number sense; what a number represents, cardinality, addition, subtraction, and how to manipulate numbers.
