Diwali Ten Frame Task Cards

Diwali Ten Frame Task Cards

This download includes task cards with ten frames 0 - 10. Students have to count how many candles are in the ten frame and then select the correct answer out of 3 choices on the bottom of the task card. Come in color/colour and black and white option. All graphics are linked to the theme of Diwali. Instructions are included on the first page of PDF file. 2 task cards come on each page. I recommend cutting and laminating each task card individually, by laminating the task cards you will find they are stronger and longer lasting. This means you can use them year in, year out for your students, just pulling them out of the cupboard and you can wipe them clean after your students have finished with them! Great for number/counting practice especially for the theme of Diwali.
