Addition Snake Game Montessori

This is an example of how the snake game might look after the child has FINISHED the Montessori addition memorization sequence. There are a lot of other videos of the snake game available but those I have found have only demonstrated how the snake game would look at the BEGINNING of the memorization sequence. I am not a professional Montessori guide. This is simply an example of how we use the game in our home based on the albums and Montessori courses to which I have access. You can read more about this game and the differences in procedure depending on when you are using it here:

CORRECTION: At 2:50 I misspoke and added 7+6 rather than the 6+6 I actually had in front of me. Oops. I was nervous.

  • This is so helpful. I especially appreciate that you mentioned the goal is more the process than absolute accuracy at first- so checking the work isn't always necessary if the child hasn't gotten it perfect yet. My daughter can sometimes be fidgety and impatient and I wouldn't want to discourage her by telling her she's counted wrong, as long as she's basically got the right idea. Hopefully she'll start counting more precisely and then I'll start asking her to check her work. Again, thanks for that tip.

    Oh, also thanks for the tip about using plastic bread bag ties as place holders for counting, instead of the Montessori counting arrows. Any way to save money is appreciated.

  • I've never seen it this way. Thanks!!!

    I thought it might also be nice to find known bonds of 10 first then do this??
    Please could you do subtraction, negative and multiplication snake games. I never did those and am finding it difficult to get info.

  • This is great, I've never seen it described like this before, thank you. Just a small point but at 2.50 you've got a 6 + 6 not a 7 + 6, it's not really a major feature in the presentation though I just thought I'd mention it x
