Ten Frames are a maths teaching resource to help students make a visual model to match a number name with the quantity it represents. Students can use these Blank Ten Frames to represent numbers to 10 by placing counters or blocks into the appropriate number of squares in the Ten Frame.
Knowledge of place value can be developed by using more Ten Frames when you have a greater number. For example, 14 would be represented with a full Ten Frame of 10 and another with only 4 counters or blocks (representing 10 and 4).
Ten Frames can also be useful for exploring addition and subtraction concepts (teaching ideas included in the file).
