# Ten Frame--Modeling Sums within Twenty-Image 52

## Topic

Numbers and Operations

## Description

This math clip art image models the sum of two addends on two ten frames. The first addend is represented by 17 red counters, completely filling the first ten frame and placing seven on the second. The second addend is shown by 3 yellow counters on the second ten frame. This visual representation illustrates the sum 17 + 3 = 20, demonstrating addition within 20.

This image, part of a larger collection, is an invaluable tool for teaching addition within 20. By progressing through the series, students can observe how sums change as the number of yellow counters increases. This systematic approach helps reinforce number sense and addition strategies, such as making ten and counting on.

Using math clip art to teach mathematics is crucial as it provides a visual and concrete representation of abstract concepts. These images help students, especially visual learners, to grasp mathematical ideas more easily. They also serve as a bridge between concrete manipulatives and abstract number sentences, facilitating the development of mental math skills.

Teacher's Script: "Let's examine this ten frame picture carefully. How many red counters can you count? And yellow counters? How has this picture changed from the previous ones? What special addition problem does this picture represent? Let's write it as a number sentence and solve it together. What patterns have you noticed throughout this entire series of pictures? Why do you think 20 is an important number in our number system?"
