Valentine’s Tens Frame Activity

I am sure our Valentine’s Tens Frames Worksheets and Cards are sure to be a hit with your kindergartner because my son would not put them down. Luckily when it was time to end the activity, I followed it up with our Valentine CVC Words activity.

Counting is such an important skill for kids to learn. Sure there are others such as pencil grip, respecting others but can you imagine if your child could not count? Imagine saying,

“Billy, please pay my telephone bill of $30 for me” and he pays $300 mistaking $10 bills with $100!!

Valentine’s Day Tens Frame Counting Worksheets

This option is the quickest activity to prepare as I had to do almost nothing. All I had to do was print the tens frame worksheets and grab my paper trimmer. I could have even allowed Caleb to cut out the sheet himself but opted to do it myself.

First, print either the color of the black and white version of the tens frame worksheets.

Then use a paper trimmer to cut the right column that has the number cards.

Lastly, have your child paste the correct number beside the tens frame.

Now if you are itching to print the color version of the worksheets but don’t want to do it for all your students then this solution is perfect for you.

Simply print on either cardstock or regular printing paper and then laminate for durability.

Cut the right column that has the numbers and place in a pile or a small basket. Do the same for the column with the tens frames.

Simply allow your child to match the tens frames to the number cards!
