Blank ten frame printable
You will find a total of four pages in this printable set.
Each page includes different amounts and sizes of the ten frames, so choose the ones that work for you best.
Ten frames help children to “see” numbers or how the numbers are built. They learn different ways to make the same number, e.g. 3+4=7 but also 2+5=7, and thus learn the basics of addition.
Double ten frames are a great tool to introduce teen numbers while ten is always one unit and then adding ones is what changes the number. This is the basis for place value.
Blank ten frame templates are great for using manipulatives such as counting bears or blocks. But if you don’t have any at hand, just use the counters included in the pdf.
Ways to use printable ten frames
There are many activities you can do with ten frames. Here are just a few ideas:
- write a number next to the frame and ask your child to color the frame
- in a similar fashion, color the frames and ask your students to write the numbers
- practice simple addition problems by coloring the frames with two colors. Ask your students to write the addition sentence.
- use them as cards! Color and cut out multiple frames and let your child practice number “reading” while on the go
- make a memory game by making ten frame pairs
- similarly, make a matching game with numbers and ten frames
