Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Make Tens and Ones - Section 1: Activating Strategy


During the activating portion of this lesson, it is important to have the students draw a model or use manipulatives to model the number.  First graders need to be able to develop a conceptual understanding of the teen numbers and that they represent ten plus another number.  By using manipulative or drawings, they will be able to make a concrete connection to the number and its value.
