Tens Frames: Numbers to 20

This is something I've had unfinished for a really long time.   I started it, and then wasn't motivated to finish for some reason.  It sat on my desktop nagging me.  Well, it's finally complete!
What are ten frames?
Ten frames are visual tools for helping students "see" numbers, understand place value, and learn important strategies for mental addition and subtraction. Overall, when used effectively, ten frames can help students build a strong sense of number.  A colleague of mine who has spent many years sharing her love of math talks of tens frames all the time.  You can read some of her posts about tens frames here.

It gives you the numbers from 0-20 shown in digits, words, and tens frames as posters to display in your room or use as teacher cards with small/whole group lessons.
