Why not give your students important practice using place value while celebrating Halloween or a pumpkin theme?
In this activity the students will count collections of place value blocks and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using place value blocks and a 100s chart.
Place value is a very important concept for primary children to work on. Being able to relate numbers to corresponding images, such as place value blocks, will greatly help them with their addition and subtraction work, especially when they start working with two digit numbers.
This file contains two pages:
1) A blank 100s chart beside a chart containing a number of place value images for the students to count.
2) An answer key showing the final image.
The final image your students will create is a happy jack o' lantern!
This file is also available as 8.5x11 sheets. If you are unable to print 11x17, these would be a much better option. In the 8.5x11 size the 100s chart and place value clue sheet are printed separately. Please visit my store to get that file.
I also have a blank pumpkin sheet available in my store. With that sheet students could solve the place value questions to create the pumpkin, then design their own jack o'lantern by coloring some squares black. Then, students could draw the place value blocks representing these black squares on the back of the paper so others can replicate their jack o' lantern.
If you would like both the jack o' lantern and pumpkin mystery place value sheets, I am selling a Halloween Pumpkin set with both included in it for only 50 cents more! This is a great set to use if you have students that do not celebrate Halloween as children can choose to either do the Hallowe'en jack o' lantern or the harvest pumpkin. You can also find other 100s Chart coloring sheets for place value, addition, subtraction, & multiplication in my store.
