A 10-frame is a rectangular visual tool that consists of ten equal spaces arranged in two rows of five. It helps students develop number sense by visually representing numbers and patterns.
This lesson helps students develop number sense by providing opportunities to recognize patterns in the arrangement of objects in a 10-frame. It enhances their ability to subitize, or instantly recognize the quantity without counting.
Developing number sense is important because it lays the foundation for understanding more complex mathematical concepts. It helps students build fluency in mental math, estimation skills, and problem-solving abilities.
Objective: Deepen students' understanding of number sense by using 10-frames, enabling them to recognize patterns, compare quantities, and represent numbers efficiently.
