## Tens Frame

A tens frame is a simple yet very effective tool for playing with numbers up to five and ten. This app provides a tens frame and ten counters, five blue and five purple.

How could my child use a tens frame? Here are some ideas!

Check that the student can recognise the number of dots on a tens frame card instantly without counting.

Make sure the students understands that the dots plus the spaces equal ten. Practise all the combinations that make ten.

Subtraction:
Place all ten dots on the frame and ask the students to imagine taking off some dots. For example, for ten minus six the students imagine six dots removed and see that there are four dots left. Check this by actually removing six dots. This leaves four dots exposed.

## Count Sort

A very basic game for children just beginning to learn about numbers. Using numbers up to 32, Count Sort helps children recognize that counting must be done in a “one-to-one” fashion. Options exist to limit the counting target to 10, 15, 20, 25, and 32 chips. The game also develops early numeral recognition and early recognition of number “families.” The iPad version includes two additional activities: option to display the chips in 10 Frames and an option to determine more than/less than.
