What educators are saying

My students and I loved your resource! Thank you for making this it was lovely, just what we needed!
Great craftivity for my students at home! Love the festive and fun place value review activity! The kids loved making their trees!


Teacher Comments:

  • “Great resource and so fun!”
  • “My second graders loved this! I will use it again when I teach first next year."
  • “Amazing resource!” “Kids LOVED this craft. Perfect creative assessment."

Put some “Woo Hoo!” into studying place value, by creating a super-cute PVT (Place Value Tree).

This is an especially fun activity for your students and a nice alternative to worksheets; making it that “extra special something” you can do for the month of December.

If your students are like mine, they will absolutely LOVE making this.

Completed projects turn out absolutely adorable and make an outstanding bulletin board or hallway display.

I’ve included 2 posters to help decorate.

You’re sure to get lots of compliments, as the results definitely have that “Wow!” factor. Mixing math concepts with an artistic twist is truly interesting.

Teacher Comment:

  • "Love this! What a great way to display place value work during the holidays!"
  • "I used these to display on my December bulletin board! The students loved making them and we got so many compliments!"
  • "My students loved this activity and their trees looked great when I used them to decorate my door for the holidays."
  • "My first graders loved this activity and they look great on our bulletin board too!"

The packet is very versatile with lots of creative options for your students to choose from, which not only results in a nice variety of Christmas trees, but allows you to diversify your lessons.

A place value tree appeals to a variety of ages and abilities.

The versatility allows younger kiddos, as well as older students, to create a Christmas tree that will have a two, three or even 4-digit number value!

Keep things simple for little ones and limit the number of decorative pieces and options, while challenging older students to create a bigger value for their trees.

Teacher Comment:

  • "This was a perfect activity for my holiday bulletin board. The students really enjoyed this activity and I appreciated that they could practice [place value] while having fun. This was also easy for me to put together."

Be sure and check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.

Once children have finished their place value tree they figure out how much it is “worth”. Solving this “mystery math” problem is quite fun.

I’ve provided several worksheet options for students to complete, as well as several whole-group activities for graphing, data collection and analysis.

Teacher Comment:

  • "My students loved creating a place value Christmas tree! Great product and very engaging activity."
  • "This was a great resource to practice place value while getting ready for the holidays! My students were very engaged.

Limited time? This makes a super-fun homework assignment. Another idea is to have students work with a partner or create one PVT in a small group of three, which will divide up the work and expedite completion.

Here’s a fun challenge: Give the small group a total tree value, and see how close they can get to hitting that number.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a “tree-menous” time decorating.
