Working with the Beaded Number Line
by Dr. Nicki Newton and Dr. Alison J. Mello
Students can do so much with the beaded number line – counting, skip-counting, place value, rounding to the nearest 10 or 100, operations on whole numbers and decimals, and more! This teaching resource by respected math educators provides 60 classroom-tested activities for elementary students. Each activity is designed to help students visualize quantities and number relationships in a concrete way before transitioning to the open number line and abstract strategies.
Divided by grade level, each hands-on activity focuses on a specific standard and includes step-by-step instructions, suggested assessment questions, and reproducible blackline masters. Formative assessment pages are also provided for each grade level.
