4b. Finishing the Counting Board.

Cutting the tubes


The tubes

Once the cones are glued in position, find cardboard tubes that fit snugly over them. Cut as many 3 inch (7.5cm) lengths from the tubes as required and pop over the cones.


Number strips detail

The number strips

On the Counting board detail (right), strips of paper have been numbered, and placed along the front and side edges to give values to the rows and columns. Several different number schemes can be used for different number topics, such as learning addition, multiplication and the place value of columns, as well as the recognition of physical quantities.

The tubes and cones could be painted, however they were purposely left unpainted here to help show the construction of the counting board.
