1st Grade Base 10 Blocks Worksheets

Grade 1 base ten blocks worksheets

Our first grade base ten blocks worksheets help students understand the base 10 number system by composing and de-composing numbers into their base 10 constituents. These worksheets only use "tens" and "ones" (no hundreds of thousands). 

Regrouping unit blocks into blocks of 10

Grade 1 Base 10 blocks worksheet - regrouping ones to tens

In these base 10 block regrouping worksheets, the student is given a number of blocks, regroups then into tens and ones and writes the total as a two-digit number.  This exercise gives practice in counting and emphasizes the relationship between the groups of blocks and the corresponding digits in a two-digit number.

Counting using base 10 blocks

Addition with base 10 blocks

Grade 1 worksheet on base 10 blocks - addition example

5 addition with base 10 blocks worksheets: students are asked to add two two-digit numbers together using base 10 blocks.  The student draws blocks to represent each number, then re-draws the blocks added together.  From the new diagram, the student can determine the sum. This exercise lays the foundation for column addition of two digit numbers.  The final two worksheets involve some regrouping of ones into tens.
