One of our first math games was a visual counting exercise. I laid out number cards up to 29 and gave them pink and blue glass beads. I told them a blue bead was worth 5 pink beads and had them set out the appropriate number of beads for each number. For example, 13 would have two 5’s (blue beads) and three 1’s (pink beads).
