Ten Frame

Thinking about numbers using frames of 10 can be a helpful way to learn basic number facts. The four games that can be played with this applet help to develop counting and addition skills.


Choose one of the four games that can be played with this applet:
  • How Many: Identify how many items or empty squares there are.
  • Build: Drag a certain number of items to the frame.
  • Fill: Determine how many items are needed to fill the remaining squares.
  • Add: Drag items to complete addition problems.

Choosing Play All from the Games menu will randomize which of the four games is played.

The items to be used can be chosen in the upper left corner: circles, bugs, stars, or apples.

The Next button advances to the next problem. The Done button should be clicked when a student believes that she has correctly completed a frame. The number buttons at the bottom of the screen can be used to enter an answer, or the computer keyboard can be used.
