Place value worksheets for first grade

Before first graders can add and subtract two-digit numbers, they need to have a good understanding of place value.

This means children learn to recognize how many groups of tens and how many ones there are in each number. And that the tens and ones in 2-digit numbers always sit in the same place, hence place value.

Practice place value with my ordering two-digit numbers worksheets as well!
