The Annual Ring is in keeping with Maria Montessori’s observations and helps one follow the circular nature of the seasons and the festivals during each month. Green shades represent spring, yellow for summer, red for autumn and blue for winter. There are 12 segments representing the months of the year, and each week a candle or marble is moved one hole along the ring. A figure or decoration for each month can be placed in the inside hole and the bowl in the centre can hold all the treasures gathered during the month. Can be combined with our Circular Calendar Disc, which is available separately.
