My sons are 6 and in 1st grade. They are learning their prayers in PREP. I think they are getting close to being able to pray a shorter rosary.
I believe there are 15 mysteries. I remember the nuns having longer rosaries which had all the mysteries when I was a kid. When DD received 1st communion, I got her a short rosary with 10 (11?) beads.
Google has instructions and lists the mysteries.

There are 5 Joyful, 5 Sorrowful, 5, Glorious, 5, Luminous
Rosaries can come in 15, 10 or 5 decades. Most are 10 decades, children can start learning on a smaller 5 decade rosary or they can say one or twodecades on a 10 decade rosary. Some children's rosaries will have larger beads.

Isn't that like worshipping another God? You (?) have no other God's before me. Isn't that doll too? Sorry I am just trying to figure out why people have such different beliefs. I am not trying to be rude or mean. I really wonder about it.
The mysteries have to do with things that happened to Jesus. It's about reflecting on the life of Jesus while you are saying prayers to God.
