# Printable Tens Frame Cards

###### Primary School Math Activities - Tens Frame Cards
• Ideal practice and consolidation of early number and counting concepts through 10 frame math games and activities...
• INCLUDES 11 PAGES -
• 1 PAGE OF BLANK 10 FRAMES,
• 1 PAGE EACH OF 1-10 DOTTED FRAMES WITH 4 DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF DOTS ON EACH PAGE...
• FAVOURITE SUGGESTION FOR USE:    Using the full 10 dotted frames - Using the full 10 dotted frames - reproduce the full page 10 frame several times - laminate these and cut a puzzle cut across the width of each frame in different configurations to make 2 pieces.   Children then have to match the pieces to make up the ten - so eg... 3 and 7   ,   6 and 4   etc....
• OR
• cut them up into all sorts of different configurations and groupings - children then use these configurations to make up and represent all sorts of number stories - eg. 2 dots plus 2 dots plus 2 dots is 8 - eg. 8 dots and 4 dots and 3 dots = 15 dots..

#### Suggestions for Use

• INCLUDES 11 PAGES - 1 PAGE OF BLANK 10 FRAMES, 1 PAGE EACH OF 1-10 DOTTED FRAMES WITH 4 DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF DOTS ON EACH PAGE...
• Ideal for recognising dotted number formations and number clusters - hold up the cards and ask children to say how many dots there are - talk about patterning and clusters - eg. '3 dots on this side and 3 dots on this side - 6 dots' - 'There is a line of dots across the top of the frame - this is 5 dots - half of the frame - half of ten'
• Children add counters to the different arrangements to make up 10 - use loads of maths language as they go - record the process using number cards. Eg. "This card starts with 6 dots - I add 2 more counters - now there are 8 - I add another 2 counters - now there are 10" 6 + 4 = 10
• These are ideal for Interactive Whiteboards - children draw on the extra counters in the spaces - loads of math language opportunities with these cards.
• Use 2 frames or more to investigate beyond 10
• Using blank frames - show a dotted frame for 3 seconds - children have to match the position and number using counters on their blank frames.
• Display number cards underneath to represent different dotted frames and configurations.
• Using 2 blank frames each - children take turns throwing a dice - they place that amount of counters onto their frames. Continue around the group until first person fills their twenty spaces - they are the winner - again loads of language here as the game is played.
•  Using the full 10 dotted frames - Using the full 10 dotted frames - reproduce the full page 10 frame several times - laminate these and cut a puzzle cut across the width of each frame in different configurations to make 2 pieces.   Children then have to match the pieces to make up the ten - so eg... 3 and 7   ,   6 and 4   etc....

• ABSOLUTELY LOADS OF MATH LEARNING WITH THESE - CUT THEM IN ALL SORTS OF WAYS - PUT THEM TOGETHER TO MAKE UP ALL SORTS OF NUMBER INVESTIGATIONS, GROUPINGS AND MORE - DON'T FORGET THAT GREAT LANGUAGE WHICH COMES FROM THIS....
