*For the math abacus, we started off using a standard abacus, but I actually ended up disassembling it and rearranging the beads into groups of 5, similar to an AL abacus. I would recommend purchasing an AL abacus if possible, such as this one sold by RightStart math, which arranges the beads into groups of 5 and 10.
