- Montessori numeral cards: Introduction; one set of large cards; three sets of small cards; and reproducible place value grid
Montessori color-coded cards for composing four-digit numerals: color-coded thousands hundreds, tens, and units. Can use in conjunction with golden beads or other place value manipulatives. Visualization of place value, visualization of zero as place holder, aid in the understanding and reading of multi-digit numerals (See Numeral Cards Instructions)
Color-coded numerals on white cardstock. Lamination and cutting required. (Lamination recommended for heavy use; cutting required.) Recommended storage (not included): Nine-inch by three-inch plastic organizer for introduction and for large cards. Secure small cards with rubber bands and store in same sorter as large or in separate hardware drawers, boxes, or envelopes.
The teacher's experience and the sequence of skills in the students' basic math program are the best guides in determining which skills should be introduced first. In general, the scope and sequence chart above can be used as a guide.
A number of sets for younger children are "color coded." Some teachers present all the levels with an exercise set, while others prefer to present all the blue (two-digit) exercises, progress to the pink (three-digit), and culminate with the green (four-digit).
Other skills such as Roman Numerals require no prerequisites other rhan an understanding of place value. Such exercises can be presented any time.
