Zoo has always been a favorite during the summer. We are always doing some zoo theme during that time. I’ve also had tons of requests for more zoo themed printables and I thought it would be fun to have another set.
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.
If you are looking for more summer themed ten frames you can check out the bubbles and beach set as well.
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 zoo animals on the frames.
The zoo 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.
There are several different types of printables in this set. There are 4 different styles of ten frame cards, ten frame worksheets, easy reader books and clip cards. They all work on numbers 1 to 20. I’m going to show you a few of the pages from the set.
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.
I can say my girls were very excited to get to use the Wild About Animals Jungle Counters. We have just love using these counters.
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.
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 monkey. The kids pull the monkey number card and fill in the monkey 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 monkey. They fill in the ten frame to match the monkey. There are options for 1 to 10 and 11 to 20.
The third worksheet has the bananas filled in. They write the correct number on the monkey. 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 a book 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 animals they saw. There are 10 different animals 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 Wild About Animals Jungle Counters to go on the cards and had the ten frame that matches the book.
