This hands on place value activity kit enables your visual and kinesthetic learner to add multi digit numbers.
The last two pages within the document was specifically designed for teacher modeling with the actual base ten place value blocks.
After allowing students to experience the representation of these whole numbers using the blocks, this activity will further reinforce the skill enabling them to see the color coded blocks that correspond with the place value. Furthermore, I find that the students find it much more enjoyable to engage in an activity that is setup in a game format; in this case mini paper blocks! It is suggested that this kit be laminated and kept in a mathematics center; thus making it readily available to the children. Using a dry erase marker, they can then record the standard form of the model within the bottom row. Also, for organization, after cutting the blocks, keep them in mini separate baggies. It is worth it!
