Looking at the rhombus, trapezium and hexagon pattern below:
What would pattern piece 12 be? What about piece 14? What about piece 15? What is the rule linking pattern number and piece for each of the shapes?)

Your child’s name as a ten-frame of beads
Create your own name with beads, blanks used to make a total of ten beads. Use as a fundraiser for your kindergarten, child care centre or school.
As each string of beads is a name, children know who the beads belong to and being threaded on a string, the beads don’t scatter everywhere if dropped. Promotes fine motor skills, learning to count and spell at the same time.
The beads are threaded so that when hanging, the beads do not slip back to the end allowing all the ways 10 can be made to be seen – 5 twos, 2 fives, eight + two, etc.
