Base Ten on a Hundreds Chart

This is such a great way to see tens and ones!
For ten less all the students do is remove one of the rods and shift the ones up 
For ten more the students move the ones down and add a rod. Ten more and ten less are so hard for my first graders I thought this was a great concrete way to show them on something that's familiar.
