I started with a long sheet of bulletin board from the work room. The kind that you pull of the roll to decorate your boards with.
I did not cut any paper off the frame from the top or the bottom. The width of the paper I used was 36 inches. The length of my ten frame is 66 inches. Your frame could be bigger, but you probably do not want it to be any smaller if you want your kids to be able to stand in the squares.
First, I folded the paper in half from top to bottom. I lined the edges of the ten frame in tape and made a line of tape down the middle on top of the crease. I used dorm room tape to line the edges and mark the frames. I measured the frame from left to right. Then divided the length by 5 and made each frame that size. I marked the frame at the bottom and the top then used a yardstick to connect the marks. I placed the dorm tape down on top of the lines to make each box. I purchased my dorm tape at Mardel, but I have seen it at other teacher supply stores.
After the frame was made and taped off I folded it in half and laminated it. Then I cut it out and used an exacto knife to open it up. I folded it in half again the other way and laminated it again. I cut it out and used an exacto knife to cut it open again. I hope these instructions make sense. Comment below if you have more questions. I will be happy to answer them.
