Lesson objective: Bundle 10 ones into one group of 10.

This lesson helps to build procuedual skill with place value. A ten frame is used here because it represents 10 single ones bundled into one unit of 10. This work develops students' understanding that the one in the tens place of a teen number is equal to one group of 10.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 2 (Reason abstractly and quantitatively) as they represent bundles of 10 both pictorially and numerically in a ten frame and on a number path. 

Key vocabulary:

  • bundle
  • frame
  • group
  • ones
  • singles
  • ten

Special materials needed:

  • counters
  • 1- 9 numeral cards
