Language is a complex set of functions that begin with the simple acts of communication. There is a continuum of communication between mother and baby even before birth. Babies can hear before birth and move in utero and after birth in sync with their mother’s voice and intonation. The loving gazes exchanged between newborns and their mothers and fathers continue to strengthen the bonds that we see through body language, the eyes, touch and finally words. Believe it or not, it takes 70 facial muscles to speak! Our bodies are amazing to be able to coordinate all of this.

Maria Montessori observed that children have what French philosopher Blaise Pascal called “the mathematical mind.” Our ability to see patterns and count is part of the human condition. Once we recognize the reality of the mathematical mind in young children, it becomes our responsibility to provide access to mathematical experiences for them. We understand that the child learns best through his own activity with sensorial experiences, whether at home or in a classroom. When we provide concrete materials that offer strong, clear and exact impressions of number and operations with numbers, the child will have a firm foundation for learning and integrating mathematical principles.
In this Montessori Math Parent Guide, Mary Ellen Maunz lays out more than 55 math related activities to help parent's guide their children in their mathematics journey.
