Number sense is an essential part to students building a strong foundation for mathematics. Understanding ten frames can help with basic skills such as counting as well as when students begin to add.

This ten frames activity pack is filled with educational ten frame math centers and games to help learners stay excited and engaged while learning all about ten frames.

Ten Frames Center Games to encourage cooperative learning: "Top-It" Ten Frames Game which is played similar to war with ten frames number cards, Ten Frames Bump, and a Ten Frames Roll, Count, and Color Ten Frames Activity.
