Grade One is using 10 frames to help us count. We are learning to group things in groups of 10 to help us count large amounts. One of our daily calendar activities is counting the days to the 100th day of school. So far, we’ve been in school 24 days. Here is a photo of our 100th Day counting activities.
We are learning that when we are counting things that are more than 10 counting is made easier when we group objects in groups of 10. Using a 10 frame makes counting fun. We put the objects on the 10 frames. When the objects are on the 10 frame we are learning that we don’t have to recount each group of 10 – we know there are 10.
To practice counting play some of the games below. You just need to click on the picture and you will go to the game. Then watch our video. We are working hard at counting.
For a challenge try making some bigger numbers.
For more fun Math games look at the top of the blog – “Pages”. There are two Math pages – “Tech tools for Math” and “Math Sites to Visit”. Look for more counting games there.
Group your objects in groups of 10.
One ten and 7 more is 17.
One ten and 5 more is 15
Two tens and 3 more is 23.
Two tens and 8 more is 28.
