Need a fun way to practice counting and using ten frames? I am sharing two fun activities with you today to help build these skills with this Free Printable Ten Frame Practice.
These resources work well with these activities.
For these two activities, you’ll just need the Free Printable Ten Frame Practice download available at the bottom of this post, and you will also need some type of manipulative, pom pom, or some play-doh to use as counters. Play-doh is always a fun option as they can roll it into balls and use them to count. Below we used glass beads that we found at DollarTree.
To play the first game, you will only need the larger empty ten-frame card and the bubble numbers. You will also need some type of manipulative, pom pom, or some play-doh.
Have the student choose one of the bubble numbers and then they will fill in the ten frames with the appropriate number of bubbles. This is a great way for the kids to work on counting, one-to-one correspondence, and even decomposing numbers.
The second game for the students to play is a matching game. You will need each of the smaller ten frame cards and the bubble numbers for this game.
Have the students layout each of the ten frame cards. They can then match the correct number bubble to the matching ten frames.
