Subject: There ARE 1's and 100's
There are 2,200 ones in the number and 220 tens in the number. Gail is on the right track a discussion and or exploration of why it is more effitient to express in as 2 thousands and 2 hundreds. Base ten blocks would be a wonderful (and dramatic) way of demonstrating why we don't normally express 2,200 in ones or tens form.
