Exciting Freebie - Number Rack!

The Math Learning Center has an amazing new set of freebies. The Number Rack App can by downloaded from the iApp Store in iTunes -OR- used as a free Web application.

The moveable beads work with counting as well as addition and subtraction strategies. You can also download a free activity/lesson book to use along with it. I'm interested in trying it with subitizing.

This could be used at home or in the classroom with individual children or with a large group lesson. Read more about it here.


  1. LOVE me some freebies! Thanks for the tip!

    And anyone that hasn't discovered Dropbox for the iPad's a must have. You can save PDFs like the manual in this post...and then add it to your dropbox which will make it available on your iPad.


  2. Thank you for this! My daughter uses a real abacus, so she will love this.

  3. And the activity book is perfect! I think we will do it the two weeks after spring break. Great!

  4. In case you have teachers without access to the app, I make a simple rekenrek with my students. You can find the directions at:

  5. MLC has also published a Web app version (for those of us without iOS devices). You'll find it here:


Thank you for leaving me a message. I love comments almost as much as I love chocolate! And I do LOVE chocolate. :)
