REVIEW (Teresa): Utilizing the Montessori teaching method developed in 1897, this book teaches numbers based on quantities, instead of the names of numbers, to promote an understanding of number values. Includes the basic strokes that form the numbers, and texture for an interactive learning experience.
The Montessori teaching method teaches numbers by introducing quantity first, so values become intuitive, and lead to the association between quantity and number symbols. In the book, a picture with objects to count is featured on the page, followed on the next page by the correlating number symbol, which features sand paper texture and directional arrows for tracing. The sandy texture of the shapes throughout the book, delineates the strokes for a tactile learning experience. Illustrations and colors are pleasing and engaging. ♥♥♥♥
