How to Make a Magnetic Ten Frame Paddle
I really want magnetic ten frame answer paddles for my class, but they are pricey so I decided to make my own Of course there are some differences between the “real” ten frame boards, but for now, the ones I created will do just fine.
Using the duct tape of your choice, completely cover the blade of the painter’s knife being sure to cover the sharp edges well. I used this adorable penguin duct tape I bought a few years ago.
Print the ten frames pictured below on the paper of your choice. I used orange to match the penguins feet and beaks. Click on the image to download the template.
Cut out the templates and glue them to the paddle.
I did the same on the opposite side as well. Then I covered both sides with packing tape for durability and so I can write on it if I need to and it will wipe right off.
Now your magnetic ten frame paddle is complete and ready to use!
