Below is a short video clip of a game called Guess My Way being introduced to two pupils. This game can easily be introduced to a whole class (if you have enough Rekenreks) or a smaller teaching group. The game can easily be modified to use a single or double tens frame and counters if you don’t have Rekenreks.
It supports understanding of a wide range of different ways to group numbers and also supports retention of basic facts in a meaningful way.
