• The REKENREK is a learning tool of Dutch origin. It is a manipulative similar to an Abacus but without place value columns. Rekenrek means "Calculating Frame" or "Arithmetic Rack". 
  • The Rekenrek is a powerful manipulative that can help children learn to subitize numbers. By seeing numbers as groups rather than the result of counting single units or counting on, children are able to conceptualize groups of numbers and how they can be combined to make new numbers.
  • Since the beads on the Rekenrek are grouped in fives by colour, children are able to see number combinations easily.
  • The Rekenrek family includes over a dozen items especially designed and constructed for use in the classroom.
