- Large bead frame corresponding long form with 55 lines

### Preparation

### Presentation

- Move one unit bead to the right, count one and write the digit 1 in the first space of the form.
- Continue counting and writing. When the tenth unit bead is moved forward, 'we know that 10 units make 1 ten.'
- The units are moved back and one ten is moved forward. Write '1' in the tens column (without a zero) Continue in this way up to 1 million; the form will be filled up.
- Go back and add the zeros
- Notice the passage from one hierarchy to the next as indicated by the zeros. Note that the commas correspond to the spaces between classes.

### Points Of Interest

### Purpose

### Variation

Formation of Numbers:

1) The directress forms a number on the bead frame. The child reads the number and writes it on the form.

2) The directress writes a number on a piece of paper and the child reads it, forms it on the frame and writes it on the form.

3) The child creates a number on the frame and writes it on the form. The child performs addition, subtraction and multiplication (with a one-digit multiplier) on this frame. This larger frame permits the child to work with larger numbers.
