Activity 4

Understand place value in 2-digit numbers and identify 10s and 1s


Talk to your child about the value of each digit in a number

e.g. 34 has 3 tens and 4 ones     28 has 2 tens and 8 ones


Ask true or false questions 

e.g There is 1 ten in fourteen and 4 ones. Is that true or false?

There are 3 tens in 32 and 5 ones. Is that true or false?


To further practise identifying the value of the digits within 2 digits numbers you could play the following game together. Roll 2 dice to generate a 2 digit number. Find the number on the 100 square. Say how many tens there are and how many ones there are.

If you are correct colour in the number. Take it in turns to roll the dice. The winner is the first person to have coloured three numbers in a line.


Talk about how rolling a 3 and 4 could let you make 2 different number 34 or 43. This could be a useful tactic in trying to make 3 in a row.
