TEN-FRAME BUS... A SERIOUSLY FUN COUNTING STRATEGY TEN'S FRAMES AND NUMBER RECOGNITION The ability to visualise numbers -named 'subitising'- is an important skill which children in the Prep room ought to acquire. Our 10's frames are a powerful instrument to assist pupils in developing such strong visual memory of numbers and number sense once they have acquired basic notions of counting. Ten's frames help to bring about a more sophisticated counting technique as they favour the recognition of numbers from 1 to 10 and of the relationships among said figures. Our koala buses with ten seats for small koalas will replace the usual mats and drawn paper cut-outs to make this number exploration MORE EXCITING!!! Especially by repeatedly placing the koala counters into the top-row seats first (left to right) and then filling the bottom-row seats (also left to right), pupils will develop sight recognition of number patterns. When they can immediately see 5 and 10 koalas in the ten-frame bus, they can count on or back from these numbers to find the amounts.For TEN-FRAME classroom exercises , visit The Franklin Institute's website at: http://sln.fi.edu/pieces/knox/pennyflipping.htm The University of Tennessee at Martin: http://cesme.utm.edu/resources/math Tacoma (University of Washington): http://www.tacoma.washington.edu/education/intel2001/Projects/math/malick2.pdf and "Using 10 to Subtract" http://www.sbgmath.com Small Koalas & Ten-frame Buses includes: 100 Koalas in four colours and ten ten-frame buses in a plastic storage case with clip-on lid and handles GEOFIX manufacture their plastics in the injection moulding plant in Sunshine, Victoria, to the highest standards.
