Count in 10s

In this worksheet, children will count groups of 10.

Worksheet Overview

When things are grouped in tens, we can count them easily going up in 10s.


Count the eggs.

We could count each egg, one at a time, but that would take forever!

A much better way is to count them in groups of 10, as you can see below: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50.


10 20 30 40 50


There are 50 eggs in total.


How about if you wanted to know how many fingers were being waved in the air by 6 people?




How many fingers does each person have on their hands (if we include the thumbs!) They have 10, of course.

So, we count up in 10s until we've counted 6 people: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60.

So, there are 60 fingers being waved in the air!!


Shall we try some questions now?
