Counting to 100 with Soroban

One of the subjects that is taught in Heguru is how to count to 100 using the Japanese abacus – Soroban. What are the benefits of teaching your child Soroban? You can read more about that on my previous post on Soroban and Anzan (the Japanese method of doing mental math using a mental image of an abacus). Learning how to count to 100 on the Soroban is one of the first steps for learning Anzan. If you would like to teach your child Soroban, these are a few Youtube videos showing you how to count from 1 to 30: 1-10: 11-20: 21-30: You can download the complete set of Soroban flash cards from 1 to 100 here:
