### Curriculum

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4

Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4.A

When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4.B

Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.5

Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.1

Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.3

Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.4

For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.NBT.A.1

Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (such as 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are compos...

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.A.1

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol...

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.B.3

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 ...

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.C.6

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - ...

• #### CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.NBT.B.2.B

The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

## Printable Tens Frame Template

Developing a strong foundation of ten is vital for students’ success in math. When they can 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 5 and 10.

Use this resource in a variety of ways in the mathematics classroom. Print the page(s) on colored cardboard and use it with colored counters.

## Why Use a Tens Frame in the Classroom

Using a tens frame in mathematical instruction offers several significant benefits, particularly for young learners. A tens frame, a simple two-by-five grid, visually represents numbers up to ten, making abstract concepts more concrete. It helps students build number sense, understand place value, and develop mental math strategies by showing quantities and relationships between numbers clearly. Tens frames facilitate addition and subtraction by providing a visual aid to see how numbers combine to make ten or how they break down from ten. This tool also supports differentiated learning, catering to students at various levels by allowing for hands-on and interactive learning experiences. Overall, tens frames enhance engagement and understanding, laying a strong foundation for more advanced mathematical skills.

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.
