The Power of Ten Using a Rekenrek

Today students used a rekenrek (calculating frame) to see how many combinations of ten they could make with their partner.  These young learners used this tool as a visual model which helped them not only discover number relationships but also aided in developing automaticity especially with the landmark number 10. This is a great way to provide hands on learning and develop basic facts by using patterns and relationships.  Using the rekenrek is one of our classes favorite activities.
