  1. Teacher will instruct the students to gather in small groups
  2. Teacher will assign each group a work place and give the tiles to each group.
  3.  Teacher will ask the students to count them in the best way they can.

3 Explain

Activity: Exploring
  1. If it is difficult to count, try making groups of tens. (Teacher can show how to make groups of ten tiles).
  2. After you have all the groups of tens, and have leftover tiles, that will be the group of ones.
  3. When all the tiles are in groups, you can count by tens and add the ones.
  4. Now you know how many tiles you have.
  5. Write the number of tiles you have in your group on an individual white board to share with the class.

Each group will identify the tens and ones on the number they have on the individual board as they expose to the group

4 Elaborate

Activity: Other — Students will solve other problems with two-digit numbers. (See attachment

1.Teacher will help read the problems with the students.

2. What do you need to find out? (students answer according to the problem situation)

3. What information do you have? (students answer with the information the problem gives)

4. What do you do now? (students will propose a solution to solve the problem.) Use the tiles if you need.

5. Solve more problems (Listed below)
