A Street Called Place Value, is an original picture book that introduces and teaches about place value up to the hundreds place. This fun and colorful book is about a family of numbers that discover they have value! It clearly explains that the value of a digit depends on it's place. At the end of the book is an activity for students to practice place value on their own.
I have been teaching for 19 years. I use this book in my Math class when I introduce Place Value to my students. My students love the story! It creates images in their minds that they easily connect with when they apply the concept of Place Value on their own. This also works well as a reminder and practice in a Guided Math Station.
