How do you introduce abstract concepts like decimals to kindergartners?
...through the decimal system! This material is sometimes called the 45 layout because there are 45 pieces of each quantity.
This activity helps young children learn to read large quantities by visualizing the material. It also serves as a foundation to learning math operations (➕➖➗✖️). Our 1st-3rd graders use an extension of this material to practice equations.
Montessori helps make abstract concepts concrete.
