Place value (within 50)



Tens, ones, digit, more, less, greater than, less than, equal to. 


Our first unit of the term is place value within 50 where we will continue our learning of two digit numbers and the fact they are made up of tens and ones.  We will expand our number range to 50 and continue to learn to build number using base 10 equipment.  We will then look at one more and one less with numbers within 50 and we will compare and order them.
