Our younger children use Rekenreks. A Rekenrek is an arithmetic frame designed to help children visualise addition and subtraction strategies. The Rekenrek combines features of the number line, individual counters, and base-ten models such as Base Ten Blocks. These are complimented with encouraging children to use sentence stems to describe their mathematical reasoning e.g ‘One needs five to make six.’
