The Numbered Spindle Box with Spindles is a long wooden tray with ten compartments numbered 0 through 9 and comes with 45 individual wooden spindles. This material is used for associating quantity with the written numbers 0 through 9 whereby the wooden spindles (or any other objects) are placed in the bins corresponding to their quantity. The large, black numbers are silk-screened directly onto the tray's back panel, and the entire tray is finished in a protective, silk-touch clear coat. The Spindle Box measures approximately 50 cm x 20 cm x 7 cm and weighs a little over 1 kg empty, making it easy for students to carry in the classroom. Also available without the spindles as Numbered Spindle Box. Learn more about how to use the Spindle Box at Montessori World and InfoMontessori.
