Ten Frame Learner’s Set

Ten Frames help children visualise and explore the concrete understanding of Number Sense.

The plastic two-by-five rectangular frames into which counters are placed illustrate numbers less than or equal to ten. This forms the basis of number sense and maths concepts to be learnt in the school years ahead.

Your child will learn essential number skills such as counting and the value of numbers, subitizing,  composing and decomposing numbers and addition and subtraction.

Great for visual learners.

Instructions are supplied in Afrikaans and English.



In the pack
• 2 Ten Frame Boards
• 20 Double-sided counters
• Instructions in Afrikaans and English

Your child will learn essential number skills such as:
1. Counting and the Value of Numbers – to determine the number of items in a group, children learn the counting sequence as a rote procedure. Children do, however, also need to learn the meaning of counting by understanding the value of numbers.
For example, children need to learn concepts such as more/less/same, count in order both forwards and backwards, recognise the value/size of each number, compare numbers, and so on.
2. Subitizing – the ability to instantly recognize “how many” in a small set. A perfect example of subitizing is dice; when you roll a dice and you see two dots on top, you instantly recognize it as representing a quantity of two.
3. Composing and Decomposing Numbers – a mathematical skill that involves helping children break numbers down into sub-parts. A child who can compose and decompose numbers understands that 2 and 3 together make 5. They will also know that 5 can be broken down to a 1 and a 4.
4. Addition and Subtraction – the key focus here is to count objects to solve problems of making something larger (addition) or smaller (subtraction).
