Grades: K‒1

Students work with an interactive ten-frame model in which their goal is to “make 10” by starting with a given number of counters and determining how many more are needed to fill the frame with a total of ten. The ten-frame model helps students explore the benchmark number 10 and to visualize each number from 0 to 10.

OBJECTIVES

- Students will use a ten-frame model to represent the numbers 0 to 10.
- Students will recognize part-whole combinations for the number 10.
