Product Description
I created this cutesy Place Value activity (2 different worksheets) to have my kiddos practice with Place Value during the month of October, around Halloween! This activity is great because it has your students thinking beyond basic Place Value where 10 ones = 1 ten, 10 tens = 1 hundred. We know that Place Value does not just stop there...you can have 16 ones, and 25 tens! Understanding the idea of "carrying" over groups of 10 is the basic foundation for when students begin working with double/triple addition, etc. So with this activity, my students draw the base tens blocks for the exact amount given in each box. (We use tally looking stick for the 10's, dots for the ones, and then squares for the hundreds - this makes for an easy sketch/replica of the base blocks). Then my students circle combos of ten that they created under each place value column...draw an arrow over into the next column, and create the new base ten amount. Hopefully that makes sense. This is very common core focused, and has students intrinsically understand the number amounts they are working with. From here, once the students determine that actually number amount, they write that number on the corresponding candy corn. Then, wah-lah! Hopefully your students will enjoy this challenge. The numbers included are in the 10's, 20's, 30's. I use this activity with my Gifted and Talented second graders, but have found that all my second graders benefit from the enrichment this activity presents!
