Place a counter in the ten frame for
each of the rabbits.
We’re shown a number of
rabbits. We have to count them by placing a
counter in the ten frame for each of the rabbits. Each time we count a rabbit, we
have to place a counter in the ten frame. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine. There are nine rabbits and nine
counters in the ten frame. Nine is one less than 10. That’s why there’s one space left
in the ten frame. Which of these ten frames shows the
The first ten frame is full, which
means it has 10 counters. But the second frame has one less,
which means it has nine. This is the ten frame that shows the
number of rabbits. There are nine rabbits and nine
counters. The third ten frame has two less
than 10, which means there are eight counters. The ten frame, which shows the
correct number, is the one which shows nine counters.
