**How do you introduce a place value in a lesson?**

Explain that you are going to say a number and you want them to show that number using ones and tens. Begin with single digit numbers. After they have had practice moving cubes onto their workspace, begin building 2-digit numbers. Have them place 1 ten and 2 ones on their board.
