This document contains two different sheets. The first sheet has only one ten frame box per section. The second sheet contains two ten frame boxes per section. This offers you versatility, the ability to easily differentiate and to extend learning when and where necessary.
In the large box at the top of each section, write the number you would like the student(s) to demonstrate using the ten-frame(s) below it. This sheet allows you to customize each sheet for each lesson and for each student.
Enlarge each sheet at a local printing company or education agency. Laminate if desired. Use this enlarged sheet as an anchor chart, math center, or as a whole/small group teaching tool.
Print a class set of these sheets on cardstock and then laminate them. Using wet erase or dry erase markers, students can practice multiple times with different numbers. Photographs may be taken of these sheets if documentation is needed.
Allow students to challenge each other to complete each ten frame. Students can create the worksheets for one another and then trade and check each other’s answers.
Enlarge this sheet on an Elmo, SmartBoard, overhead projector, or other classroom projection system to use to introduce and reinforce the idea, use, and application of ten frames.
Send copies of this sheet home to share with families.
Print the two different sheets on different colors to easily distinguish them.
Print the sheets cardstock, cut the sections apart on the lines, write in your chosen numbers on one set of cards and color in the appropriate, matching ten frames on another set of cards. Laminate if desired. Use as a matching game. For example, on one card you might write the number 7. On another card you will leave the number section blank and color/dot in the ten frame with seven dots. These two cards would be a match.
Use these sheets as to pretest, check for understanding, and posttest your students on the use of ten frames.
Add and eliminate boxes and numbers as appropriate to differentiate based on need, experience, and time.
