My son is learning t0 frames in Math He's in kindergarten. This is all NEW to me. I obviously don't remember kindergarten math for myself, but I was a little confused on his homework. So I googled ten frames to see what this is about. It brought me to this video. This is NOT his teacher, but the teacher is clapping and snapping at her children and I couldn't imagine a learning enviroment like that!

Watch video here.

The teacher is just implementing a form of classroom management. Her clap signaled the students to say 10, and her snap signaled for the students to tell how many ones there were. She's keeping them focused on the skill, that's for sure.

That's just different for me but it does keep them focused here.

I thought it was a pretty effective way to keep students from shouting out and giving all students think time. I may even try that style out next year with my students.

She's just signaling to the kids when to say the answer; that way all the kids get a chance to formulate it without the quicker or louder ones just yelling it out first.  Looks good to me.

I like her style of teaching and the children seem to like it and learning very well from it! I wouldn't have a problem if my daughter's teacher taught her class that way.

well, I'm the odd one out. I'm not liking it so much. I like a little more happiness in the classroom, but that is just me. She doesn't smile once or make learning fun. Clapping and snapping..Idk. It just isn't how I would like my child to be taught at school but to each their own.

 I thought it was EXCELLENT!.. How unusual!  A teacher who actually had control of her classroom.  How unique!.  I have substitute taught in many classrooms and many do not have the control and the lack of noise needed for concentration.  THis teacher gets 5 stars from me....just sayin'
