These place value games are a quick, easy & fun way to practice, as well as whole-group assess.
Print off a class set of the colorful place value mats, laminate & trim.
Call out a number and have children break it down using a dry erase marker.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
I've included manipulatives, in 3 different sizes, so that you can "show" the number in a more visual way too.
You can also switch things up, and instead of saying the number, show it with manipulatives & have students write down the number.
There's also a black and white template, so that students can color and make their own gingerbread place value mats.
Turn them into dry erase boards by cutting squares of glossy photo paper, and have students glue them to the "windows". Wahla! Instant dry erase!
Another fun way to practice and whole group assess, is with the gingerbread house "sliders".
Call out a number; students pull on the "sliders" 'til the appropriate numbers appear in the windows.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a jolly holly time practicing place value, with a Christmasy twist.
