Create a DIY abacus using craft sticks, beads and toothpicks.  Brilliant way to help kids count.

Homemade abacuses: I would do these a little differently. I'd do them in base 10 beads on each level to practice ones, tens, and hundredths place values.

Can't wait to use these to assess number sense

Love this! We can call them number people! We could make on each week in small groups starting at We can use the teacher example as a number display in our room.

Geometric tree

For claire Fall geo trees. This would make a fun math center where kids could count each shape they used. They'd practice counting, shape recognition and writing the number - love it!
