Montessori 12345 Preschool Bead Stair Stacker
Why this set is so awesome!
Preschoolers are at a special age of exploration and are beginning to learn about simple counting and problem solving while learning to manipulate the environment around them. This Montessori Style Wooden bead stacker is a great tool for preschoolers to use as they can be used for many things including counting, enhancing the fine motor skills of the pincer grasp, and learning basic math concepts. As the bead stacker is painted to match the bead stairs used in grade school math, this stacker is a great way to introduce counting the Montessori way.
