Place Value with beads Play alone or with a partner. Roll a dice (I used10 sided) Put that number of beads on the ones side. Take turns rolling and adding beads. When you can make a 10 put the beads on a pipe cleaner cut in half to keep them together and reinforce the concept of 10 being 1 unit. Play until the student reaches 50 or the first student to reach 50 wins.
Another inexpensive craft for girls to make for other girls using pipe cleaners and plastic beads. They can make two: one for the girl's shoe box, and another for the necklace maker to remind her to pray for the girl who receives the other necklace.
