Materialized Abstractions and the Red Rods

Montessori Print Shop Blog recently posted an informational piece regarding the concept of Materialized Abstractions in the Montessori setting.  The author gives insight into the idea of an abstraction which becomes materialized while clearly illustrating the lesson of the Red Rods. If you are a parent of one of my students, I highly recommend reading more about it as some children in our class are already, or will be, working with this material!  Click on the image below to learn more about this Montessori concept and how it specifically relates to the Red Rods.
