What educators are saying

A great way for our class to get warmed up for math groups! Lots of different standards are covered on this one page.


This differentiated, open-ended, daily routine practices place value concepts (comparing numbers, tens & ones, ten more/less) & uses multiple representations of 2 digit numbers to build number sense.

  •differentiated (2 levels)
  •quick activity (10 minutes or less)
  •comparing numbers
  •place value (tens and ones)
  •multiple representations of numbers (place value chart, base 10 blocks)
  •ten more, ten less

Suggestions for Use:
Since it open-ended you can repeat it over and over with a new number each day. I often launch math time with this routine. You could use it for morning work or seatwork, leave it for substitutes, or send home for homework.

It provides a great spiral review for students to be practicing and using place value concepts all year.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
Subtract multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 from multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 (positive or zero differences), using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
