Teaching Place Value Using Abacus

A Teacher's Idea,

An abacus is an excellent resource for helping your students understand the concept of place value at any level. It can help them visualize the meaning of the places and internalize the grouping strategy behind it. An abacus shows clearly the two columns, ones (units) and the tens which students can manipulate themselves until they can completely internalize this concept. I have created a 2D set of place value mat and abacus cards to help with the translation from the concrete to the iconic stage of learning for students.

This is a set of abacus cards and mat for students to show the place value of tens and ones. Simply print and laminate the 2-digit number cards, abacus beads and the place value mat. Cut out the individual pieces and store in a ziploc bag.

Also included are abacus task cards for number writing practice.
