1-2-3 Come Work With 10 Frames With Me!
Ten frames are such a visual help for little ones. I find that most of my kiddo's are visual and kinestetic learners. I provided pictures and examples of things and plenty of math manipulatives, so they could do a lot of hands-on fun. At first, children think that these are just toys; they later learn that the "toys" are wonderful learning TOOLS to help show and demonstrate math concepts.
I tried especially hard to design things with little boys in mind, as their attention span as a Y5 seemed quite a bit shorter than the girl's.
Anything to do with trucks was always a hit, so when I was fooling around with what could appropriately hold a 10-frame, that would be exciting to a boy, but fun for girls too, a semi truck came to mind.
You can print off one and laminate, to use as a "teacher-led" instruction manipulative. Simply put it up on your white board, and using a dry erase marker, fill in a new number or equation each day. By writing these on Popsicle sticks, and letting students choose them, you can keep track of what you've already covered.
Call on a student to make X's or bingo dots in the correct number of boxes. Using 2 colors to SHOW the 2 numbers in an equation, is extremely helpful. Make an extra 10 frame semi truck and put it in your Math Center, or if you are able to make an entire class set, allow students to choose the colors for their truck and add their school photo, so that it looks like they are driving their semi.
Younger students can work with single numbers to 20, while older students can work with math equations to 20.
This is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group practice and assess understanding.
I've also included 2 ten frames in one of the trucks, so that you can work with numbers greater than 10 and less than 21.

Me and My 10 Frame
My 10 Frames have been one of the most downloaded items on the shopping cart. (Over 100,000!)
I thought to spice things up, and keep your students interested, I’d design a mini set of 10-Frames they could manipulate, and make a set for each month (September through June.)
3 days, and 101 pages later, Monthly 10 Frames was born.
It will help you with Common Core State Standards:K.CC.2, K.CC.3, K.CC.4a, K.CC.4b, K.CC.4c, K.CC.5, k.CC.6 K.OA.1 K.OA.5
Your students will really enjoy the variety of hands-on activities they can do with this packet.
Now you can use a different-themed 10 frame each month. These can also be a fun way to individually or whole-group assess.
The packet includes:
Partner students up and play math games. Use the manipulatives to make patterns.

123 Come Count With Me!
Since the 123 Count With Me Booklets have been so popular, I wanted to design some with May themes in mind.
I just finished 123 Count Flowers With Me, 123 Count Frogs With Me and 123 Count Insects With Me!
Click on the links to view/download any or all of the booklets.
These are easy readers that are perfect for an independent math center or Daily 5 activity.
Students really enjoy doing them, and feel empowered. Their independence, frees the teacher up to work one-on-one with other students, or do assessing.
The booklets review a variety of math concepts and are a great plug-in for when students complete other work, super for a sub folder or to send home with a struggling student.
Children trace then write the number and number word and circle it in the sequence.
Using a bingo dauber they make dots in a ten-frame to equal the number.
Have students use 2 colors and make an ABAB pattern to reinforce yet another standard!
Finally, students cut and glue the matching numbered group/set of objects to the numbered box in their book.
The last page ties everything up and repeats the number 10.
123 Count With Me booklets include traceable word and number cards, with matching covers, so that students can make Itty Bitty booklets, as well as a +1 more worksheet, a graphing extension and a certificate of praise.
