A ten frame mat and a double ten frame mat to use in a variety of ways.
Developing a strong foundation of ten is vital for students’ success in maths. When they are able to partition numbers into tens, they can better manipulate numbers mentally. That’s where ten frames come in handy! They help students develop a visual image for each number using the benchmark numbers of 5 and 10.
Use this resource in a variety of ways in the mathematics classroom. Print the page(s) on coloured cardboard and use with coloured counters.
This resource can be used to reinforce:
- the understanding of numbers 0–20
- the understanding that the teen numbers are composed of a ten and ‘some’ ones
- modelling the action of joining and separating to represent addition and subtraction
- basic fact strategies for addition and subtraction.
The download comes with a single ten frame and a double ten frame. We have also made a set of Google slides for this resource.Use the drop-down menu to choose the one that best fits your needs.

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in key stage 1 is to ensure that pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This should involve working with numerals, words and the four operations, includin...
The principal focus of mathematics teaching in lower key stage 2 is to ensure that pupils become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four operations, including number facts and the concept of place value. This should ensure that pupils dev...
Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find t...
