Build number sense with this online two-color counter ten frame. With the ten frame, students work on their ability to recognize quantities from 1 to10 in just a glance. Ten frames also help students become familiar with different combinations of numbers that form 10 or a number below ten.
To use the interactive ten frame, click and drag counters onto the frame. To remove them, drag them off or use the trash can button to clear the frame. Use the pencil to write numbers or annotations while working. The eraser tool erases pencil markings.
Help students practice quantities by using one color of counters for the top row and the other color for the bottom row. Then, ask students to identify the number and addition equation represented. For example, if you put five red counters in the top row and two yellow counters in the bottom row, students can identify that there are 7 counters and that 5 + 2 = 7. Additionally, students can quickly perform subtraction problems, in this case, 10 – 7 = 3. The empty boxes in the ten frame help model subtraction problems.
