By the end of the lesson students will represent a given number (0 - 10) on a ten-frame, given a number between 0 and 9, tell how many more are needed to make a ten, given a number between 0 and 9, tell how much one more or one less is. The teacher models what the number 1 looks like and the students build on their ten frame: Continue with the numbers 2, 3 and 4. Representing Numbers on a Ten Frame Ask students to use counters to represent various numbers on a ten frame. Ask, "How would you represent 1 more than 4 look like on the ten-frame?" The students should show the number 5 on the ten-frames.
