This one is a hit too!!
This week we will begin working with Rekenreks!! This is a first so I’m super excited to share! My teaching buddy and I learned about making our own this Summer in Vegas with Shari Sloane. I had been using number bracelets for Numbers to 10- which is great! However, I think the Rekenrek displays a better understanding for teen numbers!
Here’s a picture of the Rekenrek!
Step by step instructions:
– At Lowes, Menards, etc go to the vertical blinds section. Purchase a package of replacement blinds. Mine were $10.
drill (My husband did this part for me!!)
-Purchase elastic from the sewing section.
Also, purchase plastic beads- It’s best to stick with 2 solid colors.
-String the elastic through the holes adding the beads, tie off in the back.

Along with working hands on we are also going to do practice sheets that go along with each of the numbers! See examples below and scroll down for free downloads!
