FiveFrame and TenFrame Math Talks
Five and tenframes support students to make sense of quantities to five and ten. This practice can build understanding of the baseten numerical system. These frames also help students to compose and decompose quantities and facilitate understanding and discourse related to addition and subtraction.
Considerations when using FiveFrames and TenFrames:
 Ask students what they know or notice about the rows.

Questions you might ask students:
 "How could we figure out how many dots in a different way?"
 "What does it mean when the row is full of dots?"
 "What does it mean when it does not contain any dots?"
