These resources have been created for parents, carers and families of children in the early years of school. The activities support the important learning that happens at home. They are designed for you to have fun with your child and to help them have a great start at school.
You can download the booklet to print or listen to an audiobook reading. Accompanying videos explain some of the concepts in the booklet.
The ten frame supports your child to make connections between counting, adding and subtracting.
The use of the objects in the frame visually helps your child with:
- developing counting skills
- quick recall of patterns to a number
- a strong understanding of the numbers to ten.
Use objects in the squares to create games around counting, adding and subtracting to 10. The objects can be arranged in different ways to represent different numbers.
You can use any small objects, such as pebbles or pieces of lego.
