Making 10 on a Ten Frame with One Addend Missing

A ten Frame is a rectangular grid with 10 squares organized in two rows of five. It’s a visual representation of the numbers from 1 to 10. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make 10 on a ten frame:

  • Choose a number less than 10 as your starting point. Let’s say you choose 6.
  • Place six blocks in the shade of blue in the first row of the ten frames. This represents your starting number.
  • Look at how many spaces are left in the first row. In this case, there are four empty spaces.
  • To make 10, you need to fill the remaining spaces in the first row and the entire second row. Add four more blocks in the shade yellow to fill these spaces.
  • Count all the blocks on the ten frame – you now have 10!

Making 10 on a Ten Frame with Both Addends Missing

The goal is to find two numbers that, when added together, make a total of 10. These two numbers will be represented by the counters on the ten frames. 

  • Begin with an empty ten frame. You have two rows, and each row can hold up to five counters.
  • Start by placing counters in the first row. Place counters in a way that helps you keep track of the empty spaces in each row.
  • Count the number of empty spaces in the first row. Let’s say there are 3 empty spaces. Fill those empty spaces with counters.
  • Now, count the total number of counters in both rows. This will be your missing addend. If you placed 3 counters in the first row, you would need 7 counters in the second row to make a total of 10.
