First grade students are expected to understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. This activity allows the student time to build this understanding. Forty-eight of the cards use base ten blocks and forty-eight of the cards tell the amount of tens and ones in a number. The students will use what they know about tens and ones to tell what number is being represented either with base ten blocks or by knowing how many tens and ones.
Included in this activity are complete directions, 6 boards, 96 tens and ones cards and 2 sentence frame cards. To make the sentence frame cards, simply cut the card down the middle and fold in half. It will then stand on the table to help guide the students in their response to telling what number they have when they know the amount of tens and ones. If used, it will help them stay focused and accountable for their learning.
