Small Bead Frame

A hardwood standing frame with four wires across, each strung with 10 beads. The rows represent units, tens, hundreds and thousands.  On the left hand side of the frame is a coloured strip; white for the group of units and grey for the thousands. 

Aim: 

- To show the relationship between categories of the decimal system.
- To clarify position and place value. This helps addition and subtraction.
