The purpose of this unit is to build and consolidate the addition and subtraction facts to ten.  These addition and subtraction facts are building blocks for part-whole thinking.

## Using Tens Frames to Build the Basic Facts of Five

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

The purpose of this “unit” is to introduce addition facts to five.  It is important for students to have concrete experiences using a variety of contexts to build their knowledge of the basic facts of five.  They need to become secure in this knowledge to enable them to build on these known facts in future learning.

## Target Practice

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

The aim of this activity is to improve develop students' recall of the basic addition facts.

## Buttons and Frames

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

This activity is to allow students to explore all the combinations to ten.  These are necessary facts to come to know as they are used as a base to derive other facts from.  For example 8 + 4 = .  I know 8 + 2 = 10 there’s 2 more so it’s 12
