This document includes 4 different place value mats for a card game and four different page options (ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands) for mini books about number words and place value.
Also included: a number names chart and instructions for forming the numbers 0-9 correctly.
This document includes example photos and features my own handwritten font "Get Real".
Pages 1, 2, 3, and 4 of this document are the book pages for your students’ books. Choose the appropriate pages for each student. Some might need just the ones place, maybe the tens and the ones, or maybe they are ready for three- or four-digit numbers. I made an 8-page book for each student (that’s 2 printed 8.5 x 11-in. pages per book, each cut into fourths).
Students can make their own pages by cutting on the horizontal and vertical dashed lines. The space between the solid lines and the left edges of the paper should be left blank for stapling.
Give each student the appropriate cover (from page 5) and have them write their name on it.
Give each student or group of students the appropriate place value mat (page 7, page 8, page 9, or pages 10 and 11 combined).
Give each student or group of students a stack of playing cards (ace- to represent #1- through nine only).
Students place the cards face down on the table or floor then take turns drawing cards to put in each place value space.
Students copy the number in the boxes in their books then write the number in words below (28= twenty-eight), referring to the “Number Names” page included.
Remember that two digit numbers between 21 and 99 need a hyphen between the tens and ones (except for the even tens!)
My class loves this game! Enjoy!
