Tens Frame Match-Up Game

PDF | 4 pages|Grades: K, F - 1

A fun game to help children count and connect numerals and quantities.

Use this game in maths group rotations or as an independent warm-up activity. Students are required to match the tens frames with the numbers, 0 to 10, on the board. You can choose from three different number board designs, or use all three to create a class set.

To use this resource, simply print a class set of number boards and print and cut a class set of each tens frame cards. Provide each student with a number board and set of 0 to 10 tens frame cards. Students are required to match the numbers on the board to the numbers on each tens frame by placing the tens frame cards on the board with the corresponding number.

You could also use the tens frame cards as flashcards for whole-class number warm-ups.
