This 1st grade place value game will allow your first grade students to practice ten more, ten less, one more and one less in a fun game!

Students each use their own place value mat to house their growing (and sometimes shrinking!) collection of base ten blocks. Students can play against a partner until one reaches 100 or you can set the clock for a predetermined amount of time and students can see who can reach the highest amount before time is up.

This game is hands on, encourages place value conversation, practices first grade NBT standards in a concrete way, and above all, students LOVE it!!
