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 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 :)
