Place Value in K!

Hi friends!  Well this week we completed our recap unit on teen numbers and place value introduction!  Be sure to view my 2 previous place value posts {here} and {here}
This week we worked on 2 fabulous hands-on place value activities, place value word problems, & more! 

  The place value word problems went really well!  They helped the students expand on their thinking.  You can see an example below!  We went through the completed problem together before the students tried one on their own. 

My students were doing really well stating, “13 is 1 group of ten and three ones.”  However, when I would say, “Johnny how many groups of ten are in the number 13?”  I would get a blank look from some or the answer “13?”  That is why I wanted to place the tens/ones T-chart on these word problem sheets!  I also made a tens/ones T-chart on my whiteboard and I said something along the lines of….If we take the number 13 and place it in this T-chart we will see that there is one group of ten and 3 ones.  I reminded the students to place the teen number in the T-chart in their head to remember how many groups of ten are in each teen number.  This REALLY helped!
