Ten Frame FUN!

Happy Monday friends!

For those of you enjoying summer (like myself).... I hope you have your feet propped up with a good book or magazine in your hand (perhaps a yummy beverage!).... and for those of you still trucking through the last days.... you've got this!

Now... I've only been off a merely 4 official days... BUT.... I've already been thinking (briefly!) about next year!

I managed to get side-tracked on another project I was working on today and somehow I whipped up some new and fun ten frames for the beginning of the year!

Math is one of my ALL-TIME favorite subjects to teach.... but gosh it's a close tie with reading......


Number sense is SO important for our students.  I know you know this.... but I stress.... it is SO important.... and it has become one of my favorite things about teaching math.  There are so many tools that we can use and utilize in our classrooms to help our students with their number sense foundation, but ten frames are one of the most popular strategies in the classroom.

Ten frames help our students visualize in base 10.  It prepares them for place value, addition, subtraction, number patterns, and so much more!

It's not only a simple question such as.... how many are on the ten frame?

With ten frames you can ask:

1. How many MORE to get to 10?  (great for decomposing!)

2. Find two numbers that make 10 (great for using two different colored counters)

3.  Greater or less than 5?

4. Why do we need two ten frames?  (great for numbers 11-20)

5. Great for teen numbers (turn the two ten frames up and down to represent place value blocks)

So.... I created this back-to-school themed pack of ten frames that I can't wait to use with my kiddos!

The activities in this mini-pack are perfect for small group math, morning work tubs, fast finishers, and your math stations in the classroom.

Here is what you'll find in the pack:

You will find 1/2 page ten frames with numbers 1-20.  

These are great for students to pull at random (out of order), and students will represent the number using some form of manipulatives (erasers, cubes, counters, stickers, dry erase marker, etc...)

For this example.... I had some googly eyes which I thought matched the little characters perfectly on the card!

or... you can even bring out the play-dough! 

Also included are:

Sometimes... you just need to practice with your own numbers, so I have included these blank single and double ten frame template mats!  

You can call out a number and students can represent it, OR you can use the included cards:

They can easily be put on a ring as you flip through them out of order, they can be face down in a pile, or even placed in a bag or bucket and pulled out a random for the students to represent!

I've also put in two different printables that you may want your students to do.  They can be a simple print and go.... or you can place into a dry-erase sleeve or laminate and let students use a dry erase marker to complete.  

I can't wait to use these with my students when we head back to school..... and you can grab them too...  (On SALE now!!!!)

Alright..... now off to enjoy some summer (until the next project starts!)
