Rekenrek Book Cover

Authred by 

Dr. Jeff Frykholm

This book introduces teachers to a powerful tool called the Rekenrek.  Children use the rekenrek to:  
  • develop one-to-one correspondence;
  • subitize;
  • develop a solid undersatnding of fives and tens;
  • recognize the sturcture of our base-ten system;
  • "decompose" numbers based on familiar number groups;
  • see "inside" numbers, recognizing for example that 7 is "5 and 2 more";
  • develop powerful intuitive strategies for addition and subtraction;
  • become adept at using strategies like doubling, halving, adding on, etc.
