AL Abacus Special
These AL Abacuses are a special-colored limited edition. They are only available while quantities last. They are the same as the AL Abacus you know and love, only now in new and exciting colors.
This 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" (24.75 cm x 19.25 cm) plastic abacus is grouped in 5s and 10s to encourage quantity recognition and visualization. On one side the child performs basic operations and learns strategies for mastering the facts. On the reverse side, trading is emphasized.
MADE IN USA
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD! Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
We already had the regular abacus that came with the kit when we first bought Level B a few years ago. My youngest daughter is now in first grade and wanted her own abacus instead of sharing with her older sister. She was so happy there were different options to choose from. I love how confident my children are when they are learning math.
Unlike our normal RightStart abacus, this one arrived with one of the wires bowed. My daughter likes the colors and is excited to use it.
My daughter loves her new pink and purple abacus! It makes math a little more fun.
Who would have thought a Valentine's colored abacus could bring SO much joy? We love our regular abacus too, but this special new one is making math time a delight! Still the favorite, even a week past Valentine's day :)
My daughter loves her special pink and red abacus and my son is excited to inherit her blue and yellow one :)
We have a standard abacus and a special edition abacus. Both are well-made and very useful not only for the curriculum but also for solving everyday math questions. I like how they emphasize 5s and 10s and how they have two different sides. These are great products!
My daughter is 5 and we are going to start homeschooling this fall. We are going to use Right Start math and I decided to order her a pink abacus (because pink makes everything more fun right!?). She has been playing with it constantly since its arrival, I had to tell her she couldn't take it to bed the other night! We haven't begun formally using it yet but if we show her a simple concept she has mastered it. I hate math and it is awesome to see her having fun while learning and it has already taken some stress from me in teaching her. I can't wait to order our books and manipulative set this summer! Hoping to get some more fun colored abacuses for our other kids too :)
