Here is a fun center to use in your classroom that can "grow" with your students throughout the year.
12 matching pieces for just tens & ones
12 matching pieces for hundreds, tens, & ones
12 matching pieces for thousands, tens, & ones
You can choose to use all twelve of a set at once or start small with 4, 6, etc. and add to it. Each of the sets above is on a different shape to be matched. I recommend copying the centers on cardstock paper and laminating for durability.
ALSO included are also printables included that you can use as homework, assessment, classwork, etc. It's up to you! The pages are designed to be copied "back to back", so once you download you'll notice that page 12 & 13 go together, 14 & 15, etc. through page. Like above, there are two different printables (back to back, 4 pages) for tens & ones, hundreds, tens, & ones, and thousands, hundreds, tens, & ones.
Following that there are 6 pages (2 for each of the above numbers) for your students to "cut and paste" the base ten models to represent numbers. You can also choose to cut them out ahead of time and have them just make the numbers without gluing and you've created another center!
This would be great to pull out again just before standardized testing to review place value!
