Understanding place value and the meaning of a number is an important mathematical concept for students to master. Unfortunately, students who struggle to master this concept will also struggle with multi-digit numbers, multiplication and division. Therefore, it is vital that students are given hands-on, authentic and engaging activities to help make this key concept more concrete. With 32 Math Centers and 95 NO PREP Practice pages, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and master Place Value!

**In this Place Value Unit, students will learn the following grade level standards: **

*Two digits or a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones.

*10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones called a ten

*The numbers from 11-19 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)

*How to compare two two-digit numbers based on meaning of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols <,> or =

*Add within 100, including adding a two-digit number and a one-digit number, and adding a two-digit number and a multiple of 10, 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 . Understand that in adding two-digit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose a ten.

*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 of 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.

Pick two dominos. Flip them to make the largest number possible. Draw the dominos and write their values on the lines. Compare the values using >, < or =.

## CENTER NUMBER 15: FLIP AND COVER

Flip a card. Cover the number on the board that matches the base ten blocks. (NUMBERS 10-39)

## CENTER NUMBER 16: FLIP AND COVER

Flip a card. Cover the number on the board that matches the base ten blocks. (NUMBERS 40-69)

## CENTER NUMBER 17: FLIP AND COVER

Flip a card. Cover the number on the board that matches the base ten blocks. (NUMBERS 70-99)

## CENTER NUMBER 18: COUNT, COMPARE AND CLIP

## THERE ARE 95 NO PREP PRACTICE PAGES INCLUDED IN UNIT 4

For each page, there is a grade level standard attached so you know **EXACTLY** what you are covering! You can feel confident that **ALL** the standards for First Grade are being covered!

## HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.

Love this packet. Where did you get the spinners?

amoffatt says

Hi Renee!

These spinners are so fun and they work well for laminated centers! I got them on Amazon. Click Here to see them. 🙂

Kindly,

Antoniette says

This is AMAZING!

What a great way for my 2nd graders to reinforce and solidify 1st grade place value concepts before moving on to the 2nd skills.

It would be great to have a similar set geared for 2nd grade concepts. Do you have any plans of creating one?

amoffatt says

Hi Antoniette!

YES! I will be starting on 2nd Grade next! Keep an eye out, because I will be releasing the 2nd Grade Growing Bundle very soon, so you can buy in at a lower price. 🙂

Kindly,

Annie

Gabrielle Mazzaro says

I am just interested in one worksheet from one of your units. I don’t want to purchase the entire thing just yet. I’d like to test out one particular activity and the decide if I want to buy the bundle or not. Please let me know if this is possible. Thank you

amoffatt says

Hi Gabrielle,

I have an option for you to purchase a bundle of the worksheets only without the centers (Click Here), but I do not sell individual worksheets. Sorry about that!

Kindly,

Annie
