What is a ten frame?
The ten frame is a tool for teaching preschoolers about numbers and counting. It is a grid of 10 squares that are labeled with the numbers 1 to 10.
Ten frames are used in classrooms, homes, and childcare centers. They are also used in Montessori classrooms where children can learn about numbers and counting as they complete activities with the ten frame.
ten frames is a teaching tool that is used to teach children how to count. It consists of a frame with ten dots on each side, and the child counts the dots by putting their finger or other object on each dot in sequence.
A ten frame is a visual representation of numbers and operations. The number can be represented in both words and numerals.
The ten frame has two rows, with five boxes in each row. The first row has one box at the top that represents zero, four boxes to represent the numbers 1 through 4, and one box at the bottom to represent 10. The second row has one box to represent zero, three boxes for numbers 5 through 7, and one box at the bottom for 20.

- Print, photocopy and hand out!
- I like to do a class review with all the students just so they get the hang of this activity.
- Students work alone or in pairs, ask them to count the dinosaurs they see in each box. Then ask “how many more do we need to make 10?”. This gets them thinking about their numbers, they count on from the number they finished on in the boxes.
- They then write the number sequence.
