### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a quick and easy little activity to practice place value with tens and ones!

I usually open up Paint or some other document on my interactive whiteboard with one red, one orange, one yellow, one green, one blue, and one purple number. Could be easily modified with colored dry-erase markers! For example, 45 would be red, 23 would be orange, and so on.

Students correspond the labeled colored section to that colored number on the board and complete the activities. I usually require students to lay out the number with base ten blocks before drawing & writing. They will write the number, draw it using base ten blocks, write the number of tens & ones, and write the number in expanded form (40 + 5 = 45). Not the fanciest activity in the world, but it sure helped my first graders!
When they're done, they can color the blocks the corresponding color.

By adding the component of color, this activity can easily be re-used and repeated for those who struggle with place value!

Common Core, Grade 1: Numbers & Operations in Base Ten:
i. Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases: 1.NBT.2.
1. 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones — called a “ten.”
2. The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
3. 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).
