Working with the Beaded Number Line

Students can do so much with the beaded number line: counting, skip-counting, place value, rounding to the nearest 10 or 100, operations on whole numbers and decimals, and more!

Developed by myself and my esteemed colleague, Dr. Nicki Newton, this reproducible resource provides 60 classroom-tested activities divided by grade level. Activities are designed to help students visualize quantities and number relationships in a concrete way before they transition to the open number line and abstract strategies.

Each activity focuses on a specific standard and includes instructions, assessment questions, and blackline masters. Formative assessments are provided for each grade level.
