Looking for the perfect tool to build or review second grade place value fluency and understanding for numbers 0 - 100? Discovered your second graders aren’t retaining the skills introduced during your place value unit? Searching for a low-prep, engaging routine that boosts place value skills? This reusable Number of the Day Binder is a perfect way to address your needs.

A printable and Google Classroom-ready digital version of this resource are both included.



One of the greatest challenges we face as teachers is finding enough time for all the instruction we need to fit in. Often times, we feel there is a need to hurry on to the next topic once we see students have reached their learning goal. Unfortunately this (seemingly relentless) need to move on robs many learners of their (infinitely more important) need to go back and review concepts. We learn quickly that in order to make room for the spiral review students need, we need to hit the ground running each morning when they arrive in the classroom.

This Number of the Day Binder will help you integrate spiral review on a consistent basis. Using these binder pages will strengthen your students’ place value understanding through daily place value modeling and reasoning routines. All activities in this Number of the Day Binder are designed to use with numbers between 0-100.

These reusable activities are perfect for:

★ Daily bell ringer, bellwork, seat work

★ Daily worm up during math workshop

★ A center during your guided math rotations

★ Routine formative assessment of place value understanding

★ Differentiated place value practice in upper grades



The pages of this binder are designed to be printed once, inserted into page protectors and stored in ½ binders for daily use throughout the school year. Setting up one binder for each student in this way makes it easy for your students to use white board markers to complete their activities, and erase for a fresh start with a new number the next day.

A digital Google Slides version of this resources is also included so you can easily assign this resource to students via Google Classroom.



The routine I’ve used with my second and third graders is as follows. This routine takes about 15 minutes in my classroom, and is completed simultaneously with attendance, homework collection, and any necessary morning check-ins. Please keep in mind, this resource makes it easy for your revise the recommended routine to fit the unique needs of your classroom.

★ Teacher selects a new number between 0-100 each day

★ Students complete multiple pages in their binder (3-4 pages is recommended)

★ After students complete their assigned pages, they tap their head silently to signal they are done

★ Teacher stops by to check binder pages

★ Teacher signals student to tuck their binder away after work has been checked

★ Teacher notes mentally, or in writing which students need follow up instruction related to their place value practice

★ Teacher follows up on misconceptions and mistakes as needed during guided math



When students can count on a consistent format for their spiral review, they can focus more brain power on strengthening their place value understanding. The activities in this binder reinforce the variety of place value modeling approaches, which transfer to solving more complex math problems in second & third grade, and beyond. The format of each page requires students to manipulate and model today’s number in a variety of ways, further deepening place value understanding.



Introducing each page through an interactive modeling lesson is recommended. First, have students watch and listen as you work through the page with a sample number. Then, display a new number and work through the page together, with your binder on display, and theirs on their lap or desk. The following day, you can decide if another guided practice session is needed, or if you will walk the room as students work through their page independently. The consistent format of these reusable pages quickly builds students’ confidence with tackling a new number each day.

With several pages to pick from, students who demonstrate mastery of concepts can move on to more advanced/new pages as needed. You can also reduce or increase the number of pages a student completes each day without the need for additional prep work.



Place Value Models: On page 1, show today’s number using place value blocks and tally marks.

Tens Frames and Number Lines: On page 2, show today’s number using tens frames and mark it on a number line.

Odd and Even: On page 3, determine if today’s number is odd or even using place value blocks and identify the value of the digit in the ones place.

Place Value In Different Forms: On page 4, write the number of the day in a place value chart. Record the number in standard form, expanded form and word form. Identify and record the value of the ones and tens place. The “Writing Numbers In Different Forms” reference sheet on page 5 provides information about expanded, standard and word form and includes a word list of number words.

Using A Hundred Chart: On page 6, locate the number of the day on a hundred chart. Determine how many more must be added to today’s number to reach a total of 100. Write a fact family that includes the number of the day. Increase counting fluency by recording ten more, ten less, one more, and one less than the number of the day.

Skip Counting: On page 7, exercise skip counting fluency by skip counting by fives and tens using the number of the day as a starting point.

Money Values: On page 8, count coins by circling coins that, when added together, have a value equal to today’s number. The “How Much Is It Worth?” reference sheet on page 9 provides information about the value of each coin and how many of each coin are needed to make one dollar (US currency pages included) or one loonie (Canadian currency pages included).

Today’s Time: On page 10, record today’s time in analog and digital format. Record the time one hour prior to today’s time and one hour from today’s time. Record an activity that would reasonably be done in the A.M. and P.M. hours at today’s time. Calculate how many minutes will pass from the today’s time until the next full hour. On page 11, the “Reading A Clock” reference page provides information about how to read a clock and record times in digital format.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).
100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens - called a “hundred.”
Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases:
