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.

Directions

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.

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!
