We live in a pretty rural area and I was unable to find gold beads, but found a ton of read ones, so our gold bead materials are red LOL.
Hundred squares, ten rods, and ones
Using this for place value work.
Bead stairs for addition
And I have been working on the 1000 cube
Taking a long time....but I am almost done. Here is some pics of the work in progress.
And here are some pics of A working with the bead materials on place value. I introduced double digit place value last week and she mastered that the first day, so today I introduced triple digit numbers and place value. She can count by 100's to 1000, and recognizes the 100-900 so we introduced how to read hundreds that are not just on the 100 mark. She seemed to grasp it pretty well .
