This is a printable document for identifying and building tens and ones from 1-120. In my class, my students complete one page per day, keeping with the number of days we've been in school. On the first day of school, they write the number 1 in the box at the top of their paper and color in one of the smaller boxes (or one "one") below the number with crayon. They do the same thing the next day on another piece of paper, writing the number 2 and coloring in two ones. This continues through the 120th day of school. On the tenth day, the page changes and has a ten block that they color. On the eleventh day, they color one ten and one one. Every ten days, I staple their pages together and they take home a counting book, for example the "1-10 book". This consistent activity helps children identify the number of tens and ones (and hundreds!) in two-digit (and three-digit!) numbers and prepares them for first grade addition concepts. NOTE: The first ten pages of this document should be cut in half, making two book pages (size 8.5 x 5.5 in. each) out of each piece of paper. Pages 11-24 should be left in tact and will make an 8.5 x 11 in. book.
