Printable Five and Ten frames to teach counting skills

Tens Frames are used to teach children complements of 5 and 10.  They use these to practice what’s missing from a set to make it complete.   The ten frame uses the concept of benchmark numbers (5 and 10) and helps students develop visual images for each number. For example, this device makes it easy to see that 6 is 1 more than 5 and that 6 is 4 less than 10.
