Ten Frame

Students can use this interactive Flash applet to practice subitizing and counting groups of objects, to develop awareness of our base-10 number system, and to learn basic addition facts. In the four included games students construct groups of 10 objects, add groups of objects within 20, and identify and record numbers within 20. Auditory prompts support students with limited reading ability.

      Great activity for students still having difficulty with 10

    • This is a great center activity for students still having trouble with 10. I might also do this as a whole class warm up and have students have number cards that they can hold up with their answer.
