# Draw Ones and Tens Beads

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet features blank abacuses alongside two-digit numbers, each abacus with two rods labeled ‘T’ for Tens Place and ‘O’ for Ones Place. The task for students is to draw the correct number of beads on each rod of the abacus corresponding to the tens and ones digits of the given numbers. The objective is for the students to translate the numerical representation into a visual one by populating the abacus accurately. This exercise is presented in a clear and organized manner to facilitate the learning of place values through a hands-on activity.

The worksheet’s goal is to teach students how to represent numbers using an abacus, focusing on the concept of place value for tens and ones. It encourages the development of fine motor skills through drawing and reinforces the understanding of the visual representation of numbers. Students learn to decompose numbers into tens and ones, a foundational skill in mathematics that enhances number sense. Additionally, this task aids in building a connection between abstract numerical concepts and tangible counting tools like the abacus.
