Singing Ten Frames
We have been using ten frames and counters to help children subitize as we sing favourite and familiar songs together. Songs like "Ten on the Bed", "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed", "5 Little Pumpkins" and "5 Little Ducks" can be mathematically powerful when accompanied by a ten frame as a visual reminder of the number we are singing and as a cue for helping children to subitize each number. This week we've been singing the very fun "5 Little Monkeys Swinging in a Tree" song. Enjoy!
