The red color corresponds with Montessori exercises of addition. I just had to use my red napkin holder which is part of a set from Russia to hold the rolled felt mat. Adding small touches of beauty like this to an excersice is important to me - it gives the lesson a feeling of warmth and if nothing else, provides an added point of interest for the child!
Here is a breakdown of the initial presentation of the Addition Snake Game:
|Prestation completed: The "snake" has been counted and has turned golden!|
|First control complete: The colored snake had the same amount of beads as the golden snake.|
