Addition with Bead Bars - Simple
This Bead Bar Addition work includes a total of 45 equations with the sums not being greater than 9 (simple addition):
5 pages (45 equations; 9 per page) in black and white
5 pages (45 equations; 9 per page) in color
This work can be completed without the use of the bead bars during the lesson. However, it is more effective and offers a greater sensorial experience for the child if they can physically touch and manipulate the bead bars. If you are using the bead bars to demonstrate the equation then you will need 1 set of the color bead stair (1-9).
The colors of the bead bars follow the traditional Montessori colors. If your bead bars follow another color scheme you can still use the black & white set - simply color a master copy that follows your color scheme.
