HOW TO PLAY - ABACUS - INSTRUCTION RULES

MATCH MY MOVE GAME

Move any number of beads to one side of the frame. Ask the child to match your "move" on the wire below yours. This can also be done with a repetitive pattern arrange the 10 beads in different groupings (e.g. 3 beads, 1 bead, 3 beads, 1 bead, 2 beads) that the child has to mimic on the wire below.

COUNTING GAMES

Move a certain number of beads to one side and ask the child to count how many beads you moved and how many remain on the other side. Or have the child count from one to ten as they move that number of beads on each of the ten wires.
 
BEAT THE CLOCK

Quickly move a certain number of beads to one side and have the child say how many and what color the beads are as fast as he/she can (e.g. 7 yellow beads, 4 red beads, etc.). See if they can get all 10 wires correct, or how many in a row he/she can answer correctly.
 
MAKE A SHAPE
 
Have the child try to make simple shapes using the beads on multiple wires a square, triangle, rectangle, diamond, or a perfect straight or diagonal line.
 
SIMPLE ADDITION GAMES
 
Choose a number and determine how many different combinations you can find to achieve that sum. (Combinations of ten would be 9 +1, 8 + 2, 6 + 4, 5+ 5, 4 + 6, 3 + 7, 2 + 8, 1 + 9)

COMPLEX ADDITION GAMES

Create larger numbers by assigning different numbers to the colors blue = 1's, red = 10's, wood = 100's, green =1000's and yellow - 10,000's or to be simpler, the five colors could be the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Line up any amount of beads below each other (e.g. first wire 3 blue, 2nd wire 2 red and 3rd wire 1 wood) and have the child all the totals together to determine the answer.

MULTI-FUNCTIONS PROBLEMS

Do addition, subtraction, and even simple multiplication and division problems by using the first wire for the first number, the second for the second, and have the child answer it on the third (e.g. 7 - 4 =3). After putting a certain number of beads on the first and second wires, yell out the type of problem (addition) and have them race to get the answer.
