This is a good mini-lesson, transitional activity, or center activity. Transitional activity lasts 5-7 minutes. Center Lesson can last as long as children are engaged.
Directions for Place Value Cards.
Copy each card on a different colored card stock. (Laminate)
Students will cut out squares on the grey line.
Bundle contains 10 cards each 1-100,00 , including 0 to hold place value. Included as well are Base 10 Graphics: units, rods, flats and cubes, 10 each.
Activity: Call out a number or write out different numbers for students to write down.
Students will then line the cards up for the number value.
My students keep a Math Tool Kit at their desk. They store the number cards in a bag located at their desk. .
As transitional activity ask students to get out their expanded notation cards and build the number I call out as quick as possible or Base 10 graphics.
They ask a neighbor to check their work and explain their answer to partner, then I have a student show the class their cards.
