Package contains twenty 10-bead counters. I used a variety of neon colors, with five each of two colors per counter. The beads are strung so that they stay separated when pulled down. They can be used to count up to ten and back down. They are also great for visualizing all of the ways to make ten. When counting by twos, there is enough cord to display five groups of two with space between. Another big advantage of these counters is that they are perfect for those kids who just have to have something in their hands to fiddle with. I am working with just such a student and he holds on to his counter and moves the beads back and forth constantly. It seems to help him focus on whatever activity we are doing.
