This is basic place value practice. Given one representation of a number, students supply the others. Each number is represented six ways: as Base 10 Blocks, a number of Tens and Ones, column addition of the values of the Tens and Ones, expanded notation, written out in words, and as a point on a 0 to 100 number line.
There are 6 problems to a page. I have students start out with Base 10 Blocks and a place value mat, and make each number with the blocks. You probably won’t need to have all your students go through all 5 assignments, but it’s nice to have a couple in reserve for review or for students who need extra work.
If this is used with first grade students, you can also have students take the Base 10 Blocks and show the number on a 10 by 10 grid. A page with a 10-cm grid, and a page with the spellings of numbers, are provided and can be printed back to back and laminated.
