This Ten Frame Math Game with Magnetic Blocks is such a clever, visual, and hands on way to teach kids about ten frames!
How to play:
The idea of the game is to see how fast you can fill the frames by using the dice with the least rolls. In other words: the least rolls but with higher scores will get you to ten(and a full ten frames) faster. Build a ten frame first. Decide who will go first. Keep count of the rolls. The one with the least rolls filling the frames wins!
This game can also be used to show combinations of ten(only working with numbers 1 to 6 using a normal dice though), there are so many possibilities! Are you lucky enough to throw a 5+5 or 6+4(the only options with only 2 throws!)
Use this ten frames setup to practice addition and subtraction too! A fun, hands-on Maths activity!
