We drew a variety of patterns on a large sheet of paper, we then set up a range of different resources for the children to use to follow the patterns. We also added the tweezers to create extra opportunities to practice using our fine motor skills :)
I think you could also have multiple pipe cleaners coming from one number and students have to show multiple ways to add numbers to get to that number. Counting with pipe cleaners and beads. Great for fine motor development too.
