Pumpkin Ten Frames

Sep 30, 2015

Activity for ages 4 to 5.

Fall is the perfect time to put a little pumpkin twist on learning. These adorable pumpkin ten frame sheets are a colorful, hands-on way to practice the numbers 1 to 10. Just grab an orange crayon or marker, print the pages and you’re ready for some fun fall math.

FREE pumpkin ten frame sheets. Perfect fall activity for preschoolers or kindergarteners!

Getting Ready

Prepping for the activity was as easy as it comes. I grabbed an orange marker and printed the free sheets (at the bottom of the page). That’s it!

Pumpkin Ten Frames

Middle Brother (age 4) was as excited about fall as I was so he was eager to get right to work.

I gave him the first sheet and asked him to read the numbers out loud to me – helping him on the one or two digits that he hasn’t memorized yet. Then I showed him how to read the number again and draw that many pumpkins in the ten frame to the right of it.

I love these pumpkin ten frames! Such a fun preschool math activity for fall!

Ten frames are amazing for visual learners because they easily show numbers broken down into groups of five – one on top and one below. As I filled the squares, I colored pumpkins on the top row of the frame first and then moved to the second row. That way, Middle Brother could easily see that the number six, for example,  was equal to five pumpkins on top and one down below.

Pumpkin after pumpkin, Middle Brother happily read each number and colored his ten frame to match.
