Place Value Song For Kids | Ones, Tens, and Hundreds | 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade


Picking pears, I got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
8, 9; that’s all that fit inside the ones place
value line. So I picked another pear and made a group
of ten. They fit into a bag perfectly even. 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90:
I had to keep picking pears – a hunger I had to feed – so I picked another ten and that led to one group of one hundred. (A pear bonked me on the head and I said…) Ten ones make ten. Ten groups of ten are one hundred. Ten hundreds make one thousand;
the pattern never ends. I rode my bike one whole mile,
then 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and in a little while, another mile made one group of ten. A little voice inside my head said,
“Keep going I know you can!” 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90:
I never knew I had so many miles inside me! The end of my trip was coming up ahead;
I rode ten more miles and reached one hundred. (Then that little voice inside my head said…) Ten ones make ten. Ten groups of ten are one hundred. Ten hundreds make one thousand;
the pattern never ends. After the bell rang at eight o’clock,
I started playing with my base ten blocks. I stacked up nine and then one more made ten,
and then ten tens equaled one hundred. 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900:
another hundred wouldn’t fit in the hundred’s space… I had to write one group in the thousands
place! (And then I played the air bass.) Ten ones make ten. Ten groups of ten are one hundred. Ten hundreds make one thousand;
the pattern never ends. Ten ones make ten. Ten groups of ten are one hundred. Ten hundreds make one thousand; the pattern never ends. Ten groups of one thousand equal ten thousand. Ten ten thousands make one hundred thousand. And ten of those make one million,
and the pattern has no end.
