Why not give your students important practice using place value while celebrating Thanksgiving, Hallowe'en, Harvest or the arrival of Fall?
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 four pages:
1) A blank 100s chart beside a chart containing a number of place value images for the students to count and create an image of a pumpkin.
2) A blank 100s chart beside a chart containing a number of place value images for the students to count and create an image of a jack o' lantern.
3) An answer key showing the final image of the pumpkin.
4) An answer key showing the final image of the jack o' lantern.
The final images your students will create are a large orange pumpkin and a happy jack o'lantern.
The wonderful thing about the pumpkin page is you could have early finishers color some squares black to create a face for their pumpkin. Then, draw the place value blocks representing these black squares on the back of the paper so others can replicate their jack o' lantern.
Also, this is a great set to use if you have students that do not celebrate Halloween as children can choose to either do the jack o' lantern or the pumpkin.
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.
