Base Ten Blocks

Today, in Math, our learning goal was to use base ten blocks to read and represent numbers. 


We began by identifying the two types of blocks and their values.


Then, as a class we looked at some number representations and worked together to identify the values. 


Zara noticed that when we write the value, the first number matches the number of tens and the second number matches the number of ones. We wondered if it would always be that way. So we broke into group to test our discovery. 


After, we came together and realized that our discovery was always true. Next, we used our learning to do the reverse – students tried to use the base ten blocks to represent given numbers.
