How I Teach Kindergarten Math: Combining Charlotte Mason and Montessori

Montessori addition presentation using golden beads and number cards (dinosaurs not strictly Montessori ;))

I love Montessori math materials. I started my daughter with the math sequence in preschool, but after a while found that it moved too fast. Then I found Simply Charlotte Mason’s math resources – and I love them too! I had two great methods in front of me; what’s a homeschool mom to do? Mix them together and create my own math curriculum, of course! So that’s what I did.
