This watermelon ten frames worksheet is a great way to help develop and consolidate some early math skills. Brilliant for some summer themed math!

Showing what the numeral actually represents in this way can be great for developing number sense and counting skills.
Ten frames can also be a very useful tool when it comes to adding and subtracting as children physically add or remove counters.
