A new and unique wooden resource, stressing the structure of 1-10 as a ‘five and a bit’ image.
An important step in understanding the power of 10 is to master the power of 5. Pupils can touch and manipulate these durable frames to develop their understanding of how numbers relate to 5.
Research suggests that the ability to think about numbers as compositions of other numbers, is a vital achievement in the early years of school. Our Five-Wise Number Frames add another representation of number for children to investigate. Hardwearing, wooden and environmentally friendly, these frames help develop children’s fluidity and flexibility with numbers. They are perfect for spotting relationships and predicting patterns between numbers and visualising numbers in different contexts, all of which contribute to good number sense.
Our Five-Wise Number Frames stress the finger pattern as an aspect of the structure of number; drawing attention, for example, to seven being two more than five. Children have two hands, with each hand having 5 fingers. They are used to a 5 and a bit image. The frames are an embodiment of their bodies! Offered as part of your rich range of representations of numbers, these frames are a new way to help pupils on the journey to an abstract notion of numbers to 10 that eventually transcends the different representations.
