James is counting cookies. He fills his ten frame with 10 cookies but has six left over. Where should he put the leftover cookies to easily count them? He should count them by putting them in the same ten frame and count all. He should count them by putting them in a new ten frame. Or, he should remove them and not count them.

We know that James is counting cookies. We know that he fills his ten frame with 10 cookies but has six left over. So, we know that James has 10 cookies and six more. One 10 in the tens frame and six left over. If James puts 10 of his counters in the ten frame, where should he put the leftover cookies to easily count them? Should he count them by putting them all in the same ten frame?

We can already see that the ten frame is full. Should he count them by putting them in a new ten frame? It would be easier to count them if we put the six leftover counters in a new ten frame. James definitely shouldn’t remove them and not count them. He needs to count all of the cookies.

James should count them by putting them in a new ten frame. How many cookies does James have? We know there are 10 cookies in the ten frame and six more in the second ten frame. 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16. 10 and six make 16. James has 16 cookies.
