Hands-On Learning With New Years Ten Frame

Ten frames are always fun to use. I love how easy they are to work on counting or math.

These work great for one to one correspondence and are good for a little fine motor work. The cards are a fun, hands-on activity and a lot of kids love and need.

Today I have some fun free new years ten frame cards for kids to use.

Ten Frames are an excellent way to work on counting and math at the same time. They are used a lot in Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade. By using the ten frames, kids have a different way of learning counting.

I recommend laminating the cards to help them last longer.

There are two types of ten frame cards. It allows for different levels of learning. You can use them to start to learn or review their numbers.

The first card just has the number and the ten frame is blank. This is great for older kids to use.

How we use these ten frame cards

One way that you can use the filled out cards is to have them cover the ten frame card that is filled out. We use clear glass gems or clear counters to cover the party blowers.

On the blank cards, you can fill out the ten frame to match the number. You can use anything for this. You might use any new years theme. We love using unifix cubes.

If you are not reusing the cards, you can print them on a single page and use dot marker to fill out the page or covering the filled out ten frame.

You can turn the blank cards into addition activities. You gave them two colors of unifix cubes and have them cover the ten frame with the two colors. You can do this with the filled out or blank cards.

If you are looking for a fun subtraction activity with the cards have them put more unifix cubes on the card than the number. Then have them take away the cubes until it matches the number. Then you can say like eight take away 3 is five. I often give them several sets of unifix cubes to do this with.
