Hooksett School District Mathematics Blog: What is a Ten Frame

What is a Ten Frame?

In case you missed Becky Wing’s post last week about ten frames on the Hooksett School District Mathematics blog, click the link above or below to read it.  It provides a basic understanding of one of the most important tools our students / children will use in Math in Focus.  The video she posted is below.

“If you’re wondering what a ten frame is and how it can be used to help students develop number sense… watch this video example of a first grade student.”

    I love this video BECAUSE shows 10 is 5 plus 5 but also allow the student later to think larger number are based on 10. So eleven will be ten and one NOT one and one fingers…. ten and one is eleven!!! a big shift from the magic teens that we used to teach our students and those lovely songs from Youtube the numbers in the teens start with ONE…. NO the number in the teens start with TEN. Eleven is a ten and a one!!! and so on.
