PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This instructional worksheet teaches children what 'place' means for numbers between 1 and 110. It combines familiar tools: the ten-frame, stick-figures of people, and the opportunity to color within the lines. In doing so, it allows children to count people, each of whom has ten fingers, as a single unit, for numbers in the ten's place. Children can choose to draw the stick figure of a person or to color in two hands (ten fingers) for numbers in the ten's place (e.g., 10, 20, 30, . . .90). The one's place is represented by coloring in the number of fingers "left over."

Teachers can choose to start with a numeral (e.g., "27") and ask children to identify the right numbers for the ten's place and one's place. Alternatively, teachers can start with the ten-frame (stick figure or filled-in hands) and left over fingers, and ask children to write in the correct numeral. The ten-frame opens the possibility of asking children what happens when "10" is in the "ten's place" (i.e., "100").

As one first-grade teacher put it: "I like the analogy of people with 10 fingers because it's very tangible for students."

One kindergarten teacher had this to say: "I haven't seen anything like this. I like it. It fits with what I'll be teaching soon."
