If you are looking for a place value transformation you have found the perfect resource! This has been created for my first grade classroom and aligns with first grade NBT standards, but would also be a great review for second grade before jumping into numbers over 99. All of the numbers in this resource are within 100.

Included are 4 rotation stations: 60 task cards, a board game, dog tags for students, and a certificate. There are some QR code options for some task cards but don't worry- if those are not of interest to you there are the exact same tasks avaibale minus the QR codes in this resource! Either way you still have a total of 60 task cards!

A look into the rotations:

-Students will sort if place value statements are true or false. There are base ten models & descriptions such as 15 = 5 tens 1 one (false) or 35 = 3 tens 5 ones (true) There is a QR code option for this sort. 20 task cards total either way. 1.NBT.2

-Students will complete a Write the Room for drawing base ten models and identifyfying the number of tens or ones in a number. EX: Draw a base ten model for 13. How many ones are in 65? There is a recording sheet and 20 task cards total. 1.NBT.2

-Students will play a place value game 4 in a row to practice identifying 10-19, those tricky numbers made from a group of ten and then some ones. This is probably my fav! The students can play over & over again in this rotation. The best part are that the cards cover 3 variations. EX: 10+4, base ten models, and a description such as one ten and six ones. Students put their game piece on the identified number to get 4 in a row. 1.NBT.2

-Students will compare numbers, but there is a little rigor here. Some number comparisons are listed such as 45 and 6 tens 3 ones. (Comparing the number 45 and 63.) There is a QR code option for this set of task cards. 20 cards total either way. 1.NBT.3

The best part is there is not a lot of outside prep for this transformation besides getting the stations printed & ready. I have mine laminated & cut by a parent. Have your kids wear camo/black/green, bring yourself a whistle, and you are set!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones - called a “ten.”
The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).
Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
