Do you use ten frames?
I have a little freebie for my preschool and kindergarten teacher friends. Not sure what your theme will be when you return from Christmas break, but if you are going to be doing anything penguins, this math station may fit right into your classroom plans.
Why Use Ten Frames in PreK and Kindergarten?
A ten frame is a simple graphic tool that helps students develop an understanding that numbers are composed of tens and ones. To help young children identify number sets visually with automaticity, they need lots of practice composing and decomposing ten frames. In time they will know automatically the amount in a number set without having to count the objects one at a time. This is also called subitizing.
Penguin Themed Ten Frames
This penguin themed ten frame activity is perfect for an independent math station. Provide students with lots of different manipulatives such as: cotton balls, pom pom balls, counters, play dough, etc. to give them a fun way to practice building ten frames.
