Preparing Your Ten Frames
Begin by downloading and printing the ladybug ten frames.
We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it!
They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them.
We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day.
If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you 3 free months.
You can use any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices).
Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.
Sometimes we laminate our ten frames and sometimes we slip them into sheet protectors and tuck them in a 3-ring binder. Laminating is a bit more durable but if your little ones aren’t too rambunctious with them, sheet protectors should work just fine.
Using Your Ladybug Ten Frames
You can use these ten frames with dry erase markers, gems, buttons, or ladybug beads.
Invite your child to place the appropriate number of counters on the grid and either trace the number or make a playdough snake and add it to the number.
You could even ask your child to tell you which numbers they could add together to make the number on the card.
Pair this with a fun ladybug book and you have a good start on a ladybug unit study.
