The 13 reproducible worksheets in this product constitute Unit 10 in the MathQuest 1 workbook. This unit focuses on manipulating concrete materials and using pictorial representations to help students identify and represent numbers from 1 to 19. It introduces the concept of place value and sets the foundation for the identification and representation of numbers from 1 to 100.
The concepts related to place value are abstract and difficult for young children to grasp. To help students understand how one object can represent 10, this unit uses a dime and pennies to model a 10 and some units. Child recognize that a dime has the value of 10 cents through they cannot see the 10 pennies. This teaching is embedded in the context of the nursery rhyme "Hot Cross Buns.” The phrases, “one a penny”, “two a penny,” provide excellent models for the monetary representation of numbers to 19, though one might wish that they better represented real prices for pastries.
