How many times have you had to remind your students the different meanings behind "digit" "place" and "value"? So much vocabulary is taught with direct instruction and the reason it doesn't stick is because students don't have the opportunity to apply and "play" with what they are learning.
This fun and easy math game will keep your students begging for more, all while building logic and reasoning skills alongside place value understanding. It can be easily modified for differentiated instructions, and led in a variety of ways (whole class, small group, centers, partners, and even as homework!).
It is great at the beginning of a place value unit because it becomes a go-to activity for early finishers and extra time options. With a few spare minutes before recess, kids are begging to play another round of Digit Place as a class. Worth the download, it is an easy one to add to your collection of fun math games that require little to no prep or materials.
