This activity came from a need to teach my students not just the place value positions, but also the value of a digit in each position. Many of my students were struggling to understand the concept, so this was a way to divide the concept and provide some meaningful practice.
There are three different activities with three versions of each activity. The first set of activities asks the students to color specific place value positions. There are four questions on each sheet and there is a sheet to practice 4-, 5-, and 6-digit numbers.
The second set of activities also provides three different versions. This time, students are asked to color the number of a specific value. The final set of activities increases the rigor of the activity by using number that have all the same digits. This requires the student to pay close attention to which number they are choosing.
Each page is divided into four parts so that students can cut them apart and glue them into notebooks or other student-created activities.
