Work through the different activities on the 10 frame game:
Children will see different representations of 9 and 10, and will sort them into those that show 9 and
those that show 10. Children make links between the representations and discuss what is the same and what is different about them.
• Which pictures show 9? Can you point to each item as you count? Can you make the pictures using real objects?
• Which picture shows the number 10?
• Do you need to count each object or can you see the number without counting?
• Which picture is the odd one out? Can you explain why it is the odd one out?
You will need:
Label sets of two hoops with the numerals 9 and 10. Ask four pairs of children to make or draw the representations shown in the Challenge question (above picture) and add them to the correct hoop. Ask two more children to show 9 and 10 in ten frames to add to the hoops. Ask the other children to collect groups of 9 or 10 items from around the classroom or outside area and put them in the relevant hoop.
