### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Tens Frames Cards - Why a regular deck of cards is NOT good for math games.

You CAN use a regular deck of cards to play a math games BUT there is several reasons why I recommend using special cards.

Ten-Frame Cards:

1. No Zeroes! Regular cards do not have a zero, and zero is much too important in our base ten system to leave out.  Turning a queen or king into a zero is confusing for most children.

2. The Ten-Frame! Thinking about numbers using frames of 10 can be a helpful way to learn basic number facts. It allowed children to easily count the dots, if they needed to do so and  anchored the students to ten – a very important learning tool with our base 10 numbering system.  It is easy to see how many more are needed to make 10 if you have a 7, or 5, or 9, etc.

3. And lastly, these cards help children see if a number is odd or even.  If there is a dot that doesn't have a partner, it is an odd number.  If all dots have a partner, it is an even number.
