This was made with the younger kids in mind. Those that are now just learning their numbers and the concern isn't necessarily learning to add and subtract as would be the case with a traditional ten frame.
This gentle approach allows the child to learn one to one correspondence and incorporate the tactile and hands on method by tracing out the relevant number in the attached sand tray. If you don't want to use the attached tray for sand then you could always just use it to store and hold those pesky rolling balls from falling down everywhere.
What is a Ten Frame?
The ten frame is an early math learning tool that helps the early math learner by visually counting 1-10 and aids in simple addition and subtraction. Children can visibly see what 2 + 2 equals and what happens when a number is subtracted.
Fun Manipulatives for Our Ten Frame:
Our kiddos love to fill in the holes on our ten frame with fun materials and it easily transforms their math lesson into a fun and unique experience. Some funmanipulatives are:
- Water Beads
- Candy like M&M's
