Work through the different activities on the 10 frame game:
Today you will need:
Roll two dice and then record your answer on the 10 frames.
Children continue to count up to 10 by representing amounts using buttons and then counters on a ten frame. The ten frame is presented both vertically and horizontally. As children become more confident, they should be able to recognise a number on a ten frame without counting.
• How many buttons or counters are there? Can you point to each one as you count? Can you start counting from 5 as you know there are 5 on the first row?
• How are the ten frames the same? Are there the same number of buttons and counters? Can you make both representations using ten frames and counters to check?
Children represent 9 and 10 in their own way on the ten frame. For the second part, children could draw shapes in the ten frame. Encourage children to touch each shape as they count. Some children may be able to write the numbers around the ten frame.
