Rekenrek / Bead Board Class Set & Teacher Board

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Class Set of 25 Student Boards & 1 Large Teacher Board
Made with Euroboard, suede & pony beads.
As evidenced in the Common Core for Mathematics, one of the most important tasks for primary teachers is to help young children develop a solid understanding of number and number sense -- their meanings, their associations to one another, and how we work with them.
The Rekenrek is one of the most versatile math manipulatives every created. It consists of two strings of ten beads each, broken into two groups: five red beads, and five white beads. This design encourages students to make mental images of numbers. Allowing students to use 5 and 10 as anchors numbers for counting, subitizing is obviously more efficient than one-by-one counting. The Rekenrek allows students to work with the visual models they need to discover relationships between numbers and develop a variety of strategies in addition and subtraction, including doubles plus or minus one, making tens, and compensation, thereby leading to automaticity of basic facts.
Rekenreks allow for an unlimited variety of math activities, for example:
-Modeling numbers between 0 and 10
-Modeling numbers between 11 and 20
-Subitizing
-Modeling Number Families
-Math Journal Prompts
-Representing Number Stories
-Creating Mathematical Disagreements
-Doubles
-Near Doubles
-Building Missing Addends
-Turn Around Facts
-Math Center Activities

Excellent product made with the safety of the children in mind (rounded corners). The rekenreks are sturdy and will withstand kindergarteners using them. I am very satisfied with the quality and workmanship! They are well worth the money.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  August 16, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi! My 1st grade teaching partners and I are interested in buying a set for each of our classrooms. However, when we went to check out we noticed that we would need to pay $20 each for shipping. Our principal will not allow us to purchase these if we all have to pay shipping. Is there anything we can do to bundle our orders and pay shipping once?
Amy Westrope
westropea@billingsschools.org

Hi! We were looking for 75 student boards and 3 teacher boards. We will be shipping to our school, as well. We are located in Billings, MT 59105. Thank you for your help!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 16, 2013LaraLea answered:
Hi there! If you could let me know how many student boards and how many teacher boards (if any) that you are interested in purchasing as well as what state you are located in, I can figure up a quote with combined shipping for you. Also, I ship through UPS so it is cheaper to ship to your school than to a residence.
Thank you :)

Good morning!
My fellow first grade teachers and I are very interested in purchasing these kits from you. Our question is whether or not we could receive some type of group discount on the product or shipping if we purchase 8 kits at once?
Thank you very much!

What size are the boards?
Did you put them together, or does the buyer have to make them?
Can you use yellow instead of white beads?

Hello-
The boards are:
Small 8x4 and Large 12x8
