Bead Bar Addition - Simple

This bead bar addition work includes a total of 45 equations with the sums not being greater than 9 (simple addition).

This material includes:

  • 5 pages (45 equations; 9 per page) in black and white
  • 5 pages (45 equations; 9 per page) in color
  • instructions

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 colored bead bars follow the traditional Montessori colors.
