Mini Spindle Boxes with 45 Spindles
Guidepost’s Mini Spindle Boxes with 45 Spindles are the ideal size for homeschool use. This material consists of two segmented wooden trays and the precise quantity of spindles to count into each compartment from 0-9.
Numbers and Counters
Numbers and Counters challenges the child to arrange 1 to 10 in order and to count the corresponding quantity of counters under each number. The special way that the counters are placed also highlights the idea of even and odd numbers to the child.
Mini red rods & number rods
Guidepost’s Mini Red Rods and Number Rods is a 2-in-1 material that bridges your child’s sensorial explorations with their first introduction to numeracy. Perfect for tabletop use, it is a practical alternative to the standard Red Rods and Number Rods found in Montessori school environments, which are up to 1 meter in length.
Sandpaper Numerals are the child’s multi-sensory, formal introduction to the symbols 0-9. The child uses this material to make the association between the spoken name and the graphic symbol through their tactile, visual, and auditory senses.
Teen Beads and Boards
Guidepost’s Teen Beads and Boards provide valuable experience with understanding numbers 11-19. With this material, the child first learns that the quantities greater than 10 are all made up of 10 along with a number from 1 to 9.
