Lower Elementary Kit

The Checkerboard

what's inside

The Checkerboard gives the child hands-on practice with multiplication using numbers into the millions. It is a core lower elementary math material utilized across more than a dozen lessons and for applying a variety of fundamental math concepts. 

Elementary children love to tackle math problems with large numbers—and the Checkerboard makes this possible. It not only feeds the child’s imagination but provides valuable motivation for memorizing pesky arithmetic facts. 

Our Checkerboard’s cloth surface prevents beads from shifting around. It can be folded or rolled for compact storage on a shelf. 

This material includes:

- 1 Checkerboard


- Unfolded – 32.5” x 17.5” 

- Folded – 8.5” x 9” 

NOTE: No beads are included with the Checkerboard; however, the Decanomial Bead Bar Set can be used with it.
