What educators are saying

Great way for the kids to practice making numbers. They would find many ways and loved that it used their kinesthetic modalities.


Number bracelets provide concrete practice for determining all the combinations of each number from 1 to 10. This ability to compose and decompose numbers in a variety of ways lays the foundation for fluency with addition and subtraction facts.

Teacher notes include:

  • Instructions and labels for making the number bracelets
    PLEASE NOTE: This is a DIY project and additional materials (chenille stems and pony beads) are required to make the bracelets
  • Instructions for using the bracelets in a variety of ways in whole group, small group, and workstation settings with suggestions for differentiation
  • Prompts for using with a math journal to record all combinations of the numbers from 1 to 10
  • Missing addend equation cards for hands-on practice with the number bracelets
