# 1st Grade Place Value and Comparing Worksheets

### 1st Grade Place Value and Comparing

Students begin to learn about place value by grouping blocks into sets of tens and ones. Students count by tens and ones to represent a two-digit number. The blocks used to represent two-digit numbers are used up the grades to represent even greater numbers and as an aid to computing with whole numbers.

Students learn about the size of numbers by “building” them with base ten blocks. If you do not have a set of these blocks, you can use pennies and dimes to build two- digit numbers. To reinforce the skill, have students show a given amount of money less than 100¢ using the fewest pennies and dimes as possible. Students should begin to recognize that they need a number of dimes equal to the tens digit and a number of pennies equal to the ones digit.
