MAKING and USING TEN FRAMES: We use ten frames in Kindergarten to make and
talk about numbers. It is a good tool for developing number sense. You can even try
some addition and subtraction problems. They help form a basis for understanding
place value in the future (numbers like 12 are a ten and two ones)
You can make a large ten frame using materials you already have in your home.
