Discussion Questions
 Before VideoShow students 4 tens blocks. Ask students to write the number that is represented by the blocks.ANSWER
40.
52.
4 tens blocks and 7 ones blocks.
8 tens or 80; 8 is in the tens place, so its value is 8 tens or 80.
When I add 1 to 79, I add 1 to the 9 in the ones place and get 10. I write a 0 in the ones column and regroup 10 ones as 1 ten. Now I have 8 tens or 80. So when I add 1 to 79, I get 80.
 After VideoWhat is the value of each digit in 378? How do you know?ANSWER
The digit 3 has a value of 3 hundreds, or 300, because it is in the hundreds place. The digit 7 has a value of 7 tens, or 70, because it is in the tens place. The digit 8 has a value of 8 ones, or 8, because it is in the ones place.
2 hundreds blocks, 5 tens blocks, 6 ones blocks.
405.
425; there are 12 tens. I can’t write a 2digit number like 12 in the tens place, so I write 2 in the tens place and regroup 10 tens to be 1 hundred. Now I have 1 more hundred in the hundreds place.
When I add 1 to 399, I add 1 to the 9 in the ones place and get 10. I write a 0 in the ones column and regroup 10 ones as 1 ten. Now I have 10 tens, so I write a 0 in the tens column and regroup 10 tens as 1 hundred. Now I have 4 hundreds. So when I add 1 to 399, I get 400.
