red...explaining that if the tens place of the given number is 5 or above then you round up to the next hundred. For example 252 would be rounded up to 300 since the tens place is a 5 or above. I presented this to my daughter by placing the numbers under the correct answer.

Instead of using the very expensive traditional Montessori gold beads/rods, I decided to make my own beads using natural wooden beads on natural hemp string. I have only gotten as far as beads for 1-10 as seen in the photo. You can find supplies at your local craft store. I tried to tie the knots as close as I could to the beads on each end just so that when you line them up that it is a very clear pattern that the next number is one bead larger, etc. This time I lined them up to look like a Christmas tree for the holiday season.
