The Seguin Tens Boards are placed vertically on the mat with the box of ten bars beside them.  The teacher shows the child how to place the correct number of ten bars by each numeral, beginning with 10.  The bars are placed side by side to form rectangles.  The child puts one ten bar to the left of the numeral 10.  He places two ten bars, side by side, to the left of the "20," and so on.  As soon as the child understands the exercise he is left to work alone.

Control of Error
