Ten Frame Calendars – A New Twist on Calendar Time

Put a new twist on calendar time by using a Ten Frames Calendar to teach concepts like odd and even, counting on, composing and decomposing numbers. All while making note of special school events and holidays.

A Ten Frame Calendar can help students:

  • see how 10’s are built
  • easily understand how to decompose numbers
  • develop a deeper understanding of one more/one less and ten more/ten less
  • make major school events (i.e. holidays and 1st day of school) more special
Watch my Math Mondays FB Live session HERE to see the Ten Frame Calendar in action.
