When the toddler is ready to take counting to the next level, the teacher introduces the Teen Bead Box. This is a Birch plywood box that has a narrow partition on the side. The main partition contains 9 x ten golden bead bars and the smaller partition stores a set of the 1 to 10 coloured bead stairs.
This activity will help the Child to associate quantities with the figures 1 to 9 and the concept of the tens. Once they have mastered this association, they will also have a thorough understanding of sequencing order.
