Place Value Roll

A fun place value game to help children represent two-digit numbers as tens and ones.


  • Ideal to use in numeracy group rotations or as an independent warm up activity.
  • Children roll a MAB ‘tens’ dice and a MAB ‘ones’ dice to identify a two-digit number. Children then represent the place value of the two-digit number by recording the number of tens and ones onto their worksheet.

How to use this teaching resource

  • Print, then individually cut and laminate each dice. Fold and fasten together to create a ‘tens’ and ‘ones’ MAB dice.
  • Print and laminate a class set of the worksheet. Provide students with a removable marker to record their two-digit numbers. Alternatively, print the worksheet to paste into each child’s workbook and ask the children complete the worksheet with a pencil.
  • Children roll both MAB dice, then identify the number of tens and ones rolled. Children record the place value of each number on their worksheet, then represent it as a two-digit number.
  • What would come next? – Provide children with two sets of MAB ‘ones’ dice to combine the number of ones and trade if necessary to calculate and represent their two-digit number.
