# Two Color Counter Double Ten Frame

With double the ten frames, it’s double the fun. Take your knowledge to the next level and count, add, and subtract within twenty!

To use the ten frames, click, drag, and drop the counters of your choice onto the frames. You can remove counters one by one by dragging them off the frame. Or, click the trash can button to clear the frames. Add notes, numbers, and drawings with the pencil tool. Erase pencil markings with the eraser tool.

Our online ten frame tool features two ten frames. That means you can count up to twenty! Invite students to show different quantities with the counters. For example, ask students to show 5, 10, 15, or 20. Students can observe how many of the five frames are filled with each number. Counting with the counters helps children build number sense.

You can also try many other activities with the double ten frames. Add numbers, using red counters for one of the addends and yellow for the other addend. Or, model subtraction problems using the counters. You can also challenge students to fill in missing information. For example, 14+? = 20. These sorts of problems help children master algebraic thinking. The possibilities of learning with double ten frames are unlimited! Use this free virtual manipulative in your classroom.
