PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

***Updated to include cut outs for ten thousand, hundred thousand and million. These are separate rectangles that will need to be attached to the accordion with tape. Also made the lines darker.***

Place Value Accordion shows a number in two formats: standard form and expanded form. Students write the digits and fold back on the solid line and then fold forward until the numbers meet.

There are six different versions: One with the place value written out (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones), one with the place value abbreviated (Th, H, T, O), and one with no place value notation. This set of three is comes with and without the zero place holder for a total of six different versions. Choose the one that best meets the needs of your students.

Lines are in gray to deemphasize them. Cut on the dotted line. Fold on the solid line.

The Place Value Accordion goes up to thousands. To use with younger students, cut off the thousands or hundreds prior to student use.

Please think about adding the comma to indicate the thousands place. We always tell our students that the comma "says its name". You may also want to add the lines to indicate where to fold for the accordion.
On  December 15, 2013What I Have Learned answered:
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. The comma for the thousands place isn't necessary when it only goes up to 1000. Different parts of the world represent it in different ways. However, it's also a great teaching point and the students can add it in after they've written the numbers.

As for the fold lines, there are fold lines after each "plus sign", but when I added fold lines in the middle of a number, it seemed to break the number apart. The directions page had students fold on the first fold line and then "up to" the first digit in the number. That has worked well for my students.

Great resource! I've been looking everywhere for an easy foldable for expanded form and this is my favorite by far! I agree with you - you don't need commas in the thousands place and beyond that, it would be a more effective teaching tool to have the students add them themselves. Also, the fold lines & directions for them are perfect! I had no problems with this product at all. Thx for making it free! :)

On  September 17, 2013What I Have Learned answered:
I recently added rectangles for up to one million. Because of the size of regular paper, they need to be cut and taped onto the left side.

I am not able, right now, to work on rectangles higher than one million, but maybe in the future.
