Introduction on Tens and Units


Things required:

White thick sheet – 1

Markers – any colour

Cut the white sheets with 10 X 6cm rectangles – 9 pieces

Cut 5 X 6 cm rectangles – 9 pieces

Things to do:

1. Write numbers 10 to 90 in each 10X6cm rectangle card with red (any colour)

2. Write numbers 1 to 9 in each 5X 6 cm rectangle card blue (any colour)

This is how it works:


1. Arrange the cards from 10 to 90 vertically on the floor.

2. Scatter the small (5X6) cards facing up on the floor near the vertically arranged cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Now, start with 10. Ask the child what is 11?  Explain the child, 11 has 1 ten and 1 one(unit). Demonstrate the child by picking up the card one, and place it over the zero of 10. And show, how 11 is formed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Repeat the above by doing 12, 13 …to 19.

5. Progress it with 20, 30, 40….90.

6. You can make more 10 cards and ask your child to find how many tens in a number 25.  The child will arrange it as 20 and 5 makes 25. The progression is, using more 10 cards and the child may arrange it as, 10+10+5 = 25

Note:

Make hundreds and thousands as you progress.
