Five Frame

Students can use this interactive Flash applet to practice subitizing and counting groups of objects, to understand the importance of 5 in our base-10 number system, and to learn basic addition facts. In the four included games students construct groups of 5 objects, add groups of objects within 10, and identify and record numbers within 10. Auditory prompts support students with limited reading ability.

      Love this for Pre-k and K

    • I love this activity for Pre-K or early K students. This helps them build up to 5 and then later can use the Ten Frame activity that is in the same format.
