- Tens Frame: Tens frames are a visual representation of numbers in groups of ten. They provide a tactile and visual way for students to understand the concept of place value, which is crucial for building a strong foundation in mathematics.
- Bundle Sticks: Bundle sticks are another visual aid that reinforces the concept of grouping. These sticks demonstrate numbers as bundles, making it easier for students to comprehend numbers as quantities.
