Place 12 counters. Next place a Tens Frame and fill it with the counters. The 12 counters fill the Tens Frame with 2 left over, so 12 is made of 1 ten and 2 ones. To model the addition 7 + 8, place 7 yellow counters and 8 red counters. Fill a Tens Frame to see that 7 + 8 equals 1 tens and 5 ones, or 15.
