1st Grade Math Learning Activity: Place Value Addition
Using a visualization tool, like base-10 blocks, can make it much easier for kids to solve addition problems.
This interactive place value tool uses virtual blocks to help kids practice adding numbers from 20, to up to 999. Find the value by adding the numbers together, or by counting the blocks.

This research-based course focuses on computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving. The engaging course features new graphics, learning tools, and games; adaptive activities that help struggling students master concepts and skills before moving on; and more support for Learning Coaches to guide their students to success. This course for students in Grade 1 extends their work with place value to numbers through 100, emphasizing fluency of addition and subtraction facts, and focusing on number sentences and problem solving with addition and subtraction. Students begin work with money, telling time, ordering events, and measuring length, weight, and capacity with non-standard units. Students identify attributes of geometric figures and also extend their work with patterns and data, including representing and comparing data.
