SIMPLE, COLORFUL 10'S FRAME.
FULL-PAGE FORMAT TO USE WITH MANY SIZE MANIPULATIVES TO HELP CHILDREN LEARN NUMBER SENSE.
Ten-Frames are two-by-five rectangular frames into which counters are placed to illustrate numbers less than or equal to ten, and are therefore very useful devices for developing number sense within the context of ten.
Various arrangements of counters on the ten frames can be used to prompt different mental images of numbers and different mental strategies for manipulating these numbers, all in association with the numbers' relationship to ten.
