Cards and Counters for Odd/Even


She loved it!! The idea that if a number did not have a partner, the number is odd stuck with her. I saved the old circles from an old game I almost threw out! She continued to an extension from Montessori For Everyone, linked here.

Thanks for sharing this! I don’t think most people realize just how simple it is to make and use Montessori cards and counters. I love your blog and gave you an award at http://livingmontessorinow.com/2010/09/28/versatile-blogger-award-and-sunshine-award-to-happily-pass-on/

Our daughter grasped the concept of even and odd from this activity as well. And she hasn't forgotten it since! We owe a lot to Maria Montessori!

What a great activity. My son loves his math work at school, but I don't do as much Montessori work at home. This might be fin to try!

I like the idea, I did something similar but I used legos, I think this week I'll try yours. Thank you, I like how many activities you have for teaching math, I am a math teacher but for big kids so I am in need of ideas.

Thanks Bea. My daughter actually posted this on No Time For Flash Card while playing with my phone. I had no idea she was so techy.

Now I'll link the right lesson :)

Yup! Another idea I am taking to the classroom! Thank you so much for sharing it. I also have a box full of counters I can use! Love your blog!
