Here is a description from a mom who went to the parents Montessori Maths night at her school.
I was able to order my beads through Bolek’s Crafts, as recommended on Montessori at Home. Here this crafty mom shows her process of making her own set of Bead Chains. I have all the materials I need now, and soon I’ll have the time to start, as this is definitely a labour of love. Once I get started I’m sure I’ll be able to work on the chains while doing something else at the same time. This is the guide that I will follow as I make mine.
Montessori at Home has five parts to her blog where she describes her journey in making these chains. Here they are: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5
I'm excited to use these in my sessions and with other programs within Momentum Learning Centre. I will definitely post pictures as I create them and when they are in action!
