Subject: Place value blocks

How can I teach my fourth grade students that there are no ones, or tens in a number such as 2,200? I have tried place value blocks. They seem to grasp it with the manipulatives, however, when asked the question, "How many tens are in the number 2,200?" A lot of my students respond " There are twenty." This happens even after filling in a place value chart. Help!! Thank you,
