There are many wonderful Montessori activities, but our favorite ones are Sensorial and Mathematics because they are hands-on and the concepts are easier to learn for many children.
In following the Montessori curriculum, you will come across the beautiful Montessori Bead Cabinet.
In this post, you can get some helpful free Montessori printables for it.
Please remember to visit our resources hub for Montessori Curriculum 3-6 activities and lessons!
It is full of wonderful hands-on ideas for you to use at home.

For Montessori Math lessons, you will always need hands-on manipulatives.
Math uses Montessori beads to explain about numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and more!
Check out these Math materials and bead cabinets that Montessori uses.

So let’s get to this wonderful lesson in the Montessori Mathematics subject.
In Montessori education, children work independently after they have been presented a lesson.
Children especially love to work independently on this bead cabinet because it is big and long.
The bead cabinet includes Montessori bead bars, cubes and more.
There are 4 levels or phases, actually.
With these Montessori Mathematics materials, children can learn these Mathematical concepts:
- the Decimal System (using the golden beads)
- skip counting (5, 10, 15, 20, etc),
- multiples (of 2, 3, 4, etc),
- squares (1×1, 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, etc) and
- cubes (1x1x1, 2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4, etc).
These Math Montessori beads are a beautiful concrete way of learning and it is one of the main foundations to all of the Montessori learning before they move into abstract concepts.
So, even though this bead cabinet is a bit of an investment at first, these Montessori materials for Math are invaluable because they have many, many uses and children really love them!
What’s more, this Montessori bead material is used in the ages 3-6 Montessori classroom and the elementary classroom, so you will get many years of use out of it.
It is one of the best Montessori Math materials.
You will be in awe of the sensorial impressions that children will experience with these concrete materials.
