Understanding place value is fundamental to developing and mastering number sense skills. Use this assessment activity to evaluate how your first graders are coming along in their understanding of place value using tens and ones.
This year, first graders will be introduced to place value and our base 10 number system, usually by starting with 2-digit numbers (100 or less). This guided lesson helps introduce place value to first graders through instruction and examples targeted to this skill. If your child finishes the lesson and needs more practice with place value, download and print the accompanying worksheets suggested by our curriculum team.
Kindergarteners build upon their number skills in this guided lesson which focuses on the numbers 11 to 20. Not only will kids learn to identify numbers, but also begin to associate them with certain values. It's an important concept for young mathematicians that requires lots of practice. You can give kids even more chances to extend learning with the accompanying numbers printables.
First grade mathematicians will be working this year on number sense in order to improve their understanding of the relationship between numbers and their ability to do mental math. This guided lesson will help strengthen this important skill with targeted instruction and plenty of real-world practice problems. Once the lesson is finished, you can extend learning with the suggested number sense worksheets.
This lesson is a continuation of place value practice, 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 math fluency that will support higher-level concepts in the later grades.
