I am so happy to share Vito’s favourite counting activities and materials, our Ten Frames Winter printables!!!  This printable was created out of  pinetree counting sheets which I created last autumn.  It was so popular that I wanted to recreate it and at the same time, include ten frames seen in our dinosaur post which was Vito’s favourite too.  So combining these together, plus a tracing activity of numbers has led me to produce these products!

For this winter season, I have three beautiful themes for you to choose from:

How to use these printables?

The materials are on-point and so easy to prepare!  Just print, laminate (optional) and cut in the middle and you’re good to go! In fact, you can opt not to cut at all, just print the pages as they are and use them as activity sheets!  These learning materials are a great tool to help your child practise their counting skills, one to one correspondence and learn how to recognize and write numbers.

Count and Write

One set in the printable is for tracing number symbols and words.  Vito is currently learning how to write numbers, he loves to trace numbers, thus this became a part of the learning pack.  If you want to reuse the printable, laminate it and write with a dry erase marker (or chalk marker).  Then the child can place corresponding counters on the ten frames to match the count of the objects in the pictures.

Your child will definitely enjoy counting the kids, penguins and snowmen in the pictures!

After counting, your child can opt to trace the number symbol and word too.

Count and Match

Count the objects in the picture and place the matching number symbol in the box.  You can either use our printable number cards included in the pack, use a number tile (seen in the picture), magnetic number, or simply write the number if your child can do so.  Then again, place the corresponding counters in the ten frames to match the count of the objects in the picture.

The penguins are Vito’s current favourite.  He enjoys putting the same amount of counters in the ten frames to match that of the penguins.

Using counters, playdough balls, animal figures or any manipulatives, to make your own counting game.  Vito loves putting his own number of penguins in the picture.  This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to play imaginative game and practise counting at the same time.
