Who needs this resource?
If you are like me, you realize that there are some times when teaching your entire class at once is just not the most effective way to reach all students. Because of that, I have gone to a more “workshop” approach and have been looking for quality resources and activities for my students to do in partners or trios to reinforce concepts I have taught. This set of five activities are very “game-like” and engaging yet still require thinking, problem solving, and decision making. They address the place value concepts of constructing 10’s, 100’s, and 1000’s, greater than and less than, estimating, and more! Whether you teach the Common Core or not, these are “number sense” skills that are essential to a strong math foundation.
The content of the activities is appropriate for students working at a 2nd through 4th grade level but are perfect for those first graders needing enrichment or older students needing more practice. Once directions are taught, students should be able to be extremely independent, freeing YOU up to work with other students. You will also notice that the activities have differentiated options—so your entire class can be playing the same game but at totally different levels!
What is included?
*Five high quality place value activities with differentiation options
*Student friendly direction cards
(in both color/low ink versions)
*Reproducible cards for each activity— all low ink!
*CCSS alignment page
No other materials are needed!
