Place Value is Tough

Place value has been tough for some of the kiddos. But it was vital to understand before they began putting numbers in order from least to greatest and greatest to least. We used the ten rods and ones to make the number then we wrote it out --- tens and ---- ones, and then expanded form.

34's expanded form looks like this 30+4.

Next up is 2 digit addition where place value plays a role as well.
