Looking for new ideas to teach place value and comparing/ordering numbers? This pack focuses on 2 and 3 digit numbers, but also goes a little beyond 1000 on a few of the activities.

-I'm in the Middle: Students roll dice to make a number, then find the number that comes before and after (also has a center option)

-What Comes Next: Students choose a number card (2 and 3 digit cards available) and write the next 4 numbers that would come after (also has a center option)

-What Comes Before: Students choose a number card (2 and 3 digit number cards available) and write the 4 numbers that would come before (also has a center option)

-Number of The Day activity

-Comparing Numbers: 4 cut/paste activities- comparing to 50, comparing to 100, comparing to 500, comparing to 1200

-Let's Compare Numbers: Students choose 2 number cards (2 digit and 3 digit cards available) and compare (also has a center option)

-Place Value Blocks: printable ones, tens, and hundreds blocks and a place value mat for building numbers

-Peekin' At Place Value (3 digit numbers): Students look at the base ten block cards then write the number, number word, expanded form, and whether the number is even or odd (also has a center option)
