File Folder Math Game

Activities for the AL AbacusI just recieved Activities for the AL Abacus by Dr. Joan Cotter (RightStart Math) in the mail the other day.  I immediately went about making my first file folder game for my dd.  I scanned the abacus pictures and the hand pictures that depict the numbers 1-10.  Then I made some pockets that I labelled 1-10 in alternating colors.  Voila..finished! 

Unfortunately, my dd has just mastered recognizing the numbers 1-10 on the abacus without having to count the beads.  However, she was still very excited to match up the abacus and the hand cards to the correct numeral.  I am also planning on discussing the idea of even and odd numbers later this week with her.
