Of all the ten frame themes I think the school has been a favorite. There are so many school themes you can use. I love school supplies and it is something most people have on hand as well.
I love that using ten frames builds up to learn to do so many other math skills. Plus changing up the theme gives kids a chance to learn with new themes the might just like. Plus this is a theme you could use for back to school or any time during school.
One thing I love about these sets is that it is flexible is how you use and teach with it. You have options for the different learning styles and levels that can be used all at the same time. You can have one child fill out the ten frame to match the number and another cover the school supplies. And since this is a great all year theme you can use them with kids as they grow!
The school themed ten frame set could be used in PreK and Kindergarten. Plus it could be a review for those going into first grade. The ten frame cards also make great addition centers.
Ten Frame Cards
Ten Frame cards make great centers for kids to use. You are going to find four different types of cards. Each card set goes from 1 to 20.
The second set of cards has the number and the ten frame filled out. This is great for kids just working on learning ten frame counting. We use clear glass gems a lot to count and cover the animals.
The third set has the ten frame filled out and a space to write in or match the numbers. If you have laminated the cards you can use dry erase markers to write in the numbers. There are number 1 to 20 cards to match space on the cards.
The fourth set of cards is blank all the way around. This allows you to build the numbers as you go. It has a 1 to 10 or 1 to 20 option for them. You could use anything you wanted on the ten frames.
Ten Frame Worksheets
There are three different types of zoo themed Ten Frame Worksheets: worksheets with cards, no-prep writing in number and no-prep fill in ten frames.
The worksheet with the cards has two options from 1 to 10 or 1 to 20 or you could limit it to 11 to 20. Each sheet has a ten frame and a pencil. The kids pull the pencil number card and fill in the pencil and ten frames to match the number.
The second worksheet is the no-prep writing in the numbers. The worksheet has the ten frames blank and a number on the pencil. They fill in the ten frame to match the pencil. There are options for 1 to 10 and 11 to 20.
The third worksheet has the pencils filled in. They write the correct number on the pencil. There are options for 1 to 10 and 11 to 20. It is an easy no no-prep printable to use with kids.
Ten Frame Easy Reader Books
Easy reader books have been a great way to explore different parts of learning. It is fun to have books kids can flip through and learn with. Each book works a set of numbers 1 to 10 or 11 to 20.
Each page in the books has a ten frame with a zoo animal. The book has a spot to fill out how many school supplies they have. There are 10 different school supplies in the books that match the ten frame cards.
If you want to add a hands-on activity to this you can use the blank frame card and fill it out to match as you go. I used unifix cubes to go on the cards and had the ten frame that matches the book.
