COUNTING STRATEGY
TEN'S FRAMES AND NUMBER RECOGNITION
The ability to visualise numbers -named 'subitising'- is an important skill which children in the Prep room ought to acquire. Our 10's frames are a powerful instrument to assist pupils in developing such strong visual memory of numbers and number sense once they have acquired basic notions of counting. Ten's frames help to bring about a more sophisticated counting technique as they favour the recognition of numbers from 1 to 10 and of the relationships among said figures.
Our koala buses with ten seats for small koalas will replace the usual mats and drawn paper cut-outs to make this number exploration MORE EXCITING!!! Especially by repeatedly placing the koala counters into the top-row seats first (left to right) and then filling the bottom-row seats (also left to right), pupils will develop sight recognition of number patterns. When they can immediately see 5 and 10 koalas in the ten-frame bus, they can count on or back from these numbers to find the amounts.For TEN-FRAME classroom exercises , visit The Franklin Institute's website at:

Sudoku, sometimes spelt Su Doku, is a Japanese logic-based placement puzzle, also known as Number Place in the United States. Its aim is to enter a cypher from 1 to 9 in each cell of a 9×9 grid made up of 3×3 subgrids (called "regions"), starting with various digits given in some cells (the "givens"). Each row, column, and region must contain only one instance of each cypher. We replaced numerals with baby koalas differentiated by colour.
