A young Primary 2 student counted using the short Bead Chains from the Bead Cabinet.  The Bead Cabinet Material is a quintessential and defining Montessori material.  It is first introduced as a means to sensorially demonstrate the linear concept of the Golden Bead material as well as reinforce linear counting from one to 1,000.  In addition to linear counting, the Bead Cabinet provides a concrete representation of abstract mathematical concepts.  While children at this age are not able to verbalize these concepts, they can represent them with the materials.  Through the use of short and long Bead Chains, number squares and cubes, and numeral arrows, the Bead Cabinet concretely illustrates skip counting and multiples.
