Once the child has mastered the units 1 to 9, they look towards the Tens Bead Box for the next step. This is a Birch plywood box that has a narrow partition on the side. The main partition contains 10 x ten golden bead bars and the smaller partition stores 10 single unit golden beads.
This activity will help the Child to associate quantities with the figures 11 to 99. Once they have mastered this association, they will also have a thorough understanding of sequencing order.
