These Ten Frame Flash Cards show the partitioning of a number up to 10 by using dots with two colors. For example: showing the number 6 as a combination of 4 red dots and 2 blue dots helps children start to develop the idea of the addition tables (addition number facts). These cards are great for introducing written facts such as 5+1=6; 4+2=6; and 3+3=6 as ways to think of the number 6, establishing the pairs as combinations that equal 6.
Flash Cards can be shown to the students and have them make up stories to match them. e.g. "There are 4 dolls and I get 2 more. There are now 6 dolls altogether."
Have the students find the cards that matches a story that you tell them.
Introduce Fact Families: 4+2=6; 2+4=6 (turn the flash card around and see the new addition fact); 6–2=4; and 6–4=2 (cover over the coloured dots so that the connection between addition and subtraction facts can be readily identified.
These flash cards contain every combination of addition number facts using both the rows (rows of 5) and pairs layouts. By containing both layouts these flash cards cater for teacher preferences.
