Content for lesson planning
I have never actually taught first grade, but I have been a tutor for younger students a few times. The way that I usually helped them understand it is by visualizing baskets filled with apples. Each basket contains 10 apples, and when you stack the baskets on top of each other, or group them together, you're grouping them together as groups of ten. For your kinesthetic learners I highly suggest some time of blocking system. Have the students stack 10 blocks on top of each other and solidify in their minds that, even though that is one stack that one stack consists of 10 blocks, and group them that way.
