100 Bead Giant Abacus
The Giant Abacus is an ideal resource to introduce children to the five and ten structure of numbers. Using these numbers as reference points, children can combine and partition numbers to investigate strategies for counting, addition and subtraction.
Children who are fluent with five and ten as reference points are unlikely to rely on long sequences of counting-by-ones when adding or subtracting.
