This lesson is a continuation of place value practise, and offers more instruction on identifying tens and ones in 2-digit numbers. Once first graders are able to quickly identify place value they are then able to understand on a deeper level what larger numbers actually mean. This is crucial for the maths fluency that will support higher-level concepts in the later grades.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities
Hundreds Chart Song
Help kids learn all about place value with a dose of doo-wop in this hundreds chart song. Floyd, flanked by Muggo backup singers, explains how to use this mathematical tool for skip counting, odd and even, and place value strategies in an easy-to-understand sing-along. Kids will love crooning along so much that they won't realise how much they're learning.
Place Value Game Show

It's time for the Place Value Game Show! Kids exercise their knowledge about the tens and ones place with this interactive hundreds chart. Players must identify two-digit numbers based on clues from the host about tens and ones. The silly commercials between gameplay rounds will have kids in stitches, making this place value game one they'll want to play over and over again.

Place Value Blocks

How many ones and tens do you see? In this place value game, kids must count up the number of ten rods and single blocks that appear onscreen. Once they've counted the tens and ones, players must drag the correct numerals into the tens place and ones place, honing a critical understanding of place value in the process.

Higher Numbers Card

Give a dog a bone! Challenge your little maths whiz to use his number cards to make the greatest number possible and win Floyd's doggie bones. This game is a great way for your child to practise his addition skills. Knowledge of the concepts of "greater than" and "less than" will also come in handy as your child is trying to figure out the number combination that will yield the biggest number.

2-Digit Place Value Machine

Muggo's machine is broken, and it needs computer chips to start running again. Your kid will practise place value concepts when moving the correct number of tens and ones into the machine, giving her the skills she needs to work with the ones place and the tens place.
