At school have been using a 10 Frame as a tool for representing numbers. Please take some time to watch the first video as it explains the concept of a 10 Frame for parents. The last 2 videos are games to play. As your child gets better at understanding numbers represented on the 10 Frame he or she will be able to get more of the answers correct in the game videos without having to count each section of the 10 Frame.
