This is lesson 4 of 6 from the Numeration 1-10 manual. The lesson uses the spindles and spindle boxes.
The Direct Aims are:
The spindles clarify the idea that the symbols represent a certain quantity of separate objects.
To introduce the concept of zero and its symbol.
To reinforce the natural sequence of the numerals.
To show nine as the first group in our decimal system, not ten.
The indirect Aim is:
Unconscious preparation for the decimal and metric systems.
To move closer to abstraction due to the loose quantities (compared with the formed quantities of the rods).
To reinforce the idea that there are no other symbols other than 0-9.
10 is a new level of number.
The full manual is available in my store and has a number of lessons and games. It can be accessed here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Montessori-Math-Manual-Numeration-1-10-Training-Manual-BC-Curriculum-3676158
Math starts with numeration from the numbers 1-10. Through hands-on didactic materials they build on the foundation of numerals to learn about the decimal system, numbers to 100, and the four operations.
