Need emergency sub plans? Or do you just need to reteach place value? This set includes guided video instruction, a partner dice game, and a BONUS check writing activity to help students learn standard, expanded & word forms. Place value is a HUGE standard in 4th grade and 5th grade, so let's give them lots of practice!

Let's be real.
We've all wished someone could just come and teach place value FOR us.

Well, your wish is granted, teacher friend!! ✨✨

I'll teach place value to your students with a video lesson and accompanied worksheet resources.

This mini video lesson is a great way to introduce place value to students who are brand new to the concept, or to review it as test prep before standardized testing.

It's also helpful for students who are struggling to write numbers in expanded, word, and standard number forms.

This mini-lesson also makes for a great reteach, test prep refresher, or differentiated assignment.

I designed the instructional video and resources for in-person, whole-group lessons that come before math center rotations - but if you're teaching online, you can easily adapt this activity by assigning everything in Google Classroom.

It’s so hard to move past the basics when students don’t understand place value. It’s a huge concept for upper elementary students!

To truly get it, they need a LOT of practice - as well as tools to make it more concrete for them.

That’s why this dice partner game and the added write a check activity are just what your students need to be successful.

Ways to Use This Resource Remotely

  • Assign the instructional video on Google Classroom
  • Stream the video during your live Google Meet or Zoom call
  • Use your own money as a demonstration, or have them share their screen while using an online money manipulative
  • Have students draw out bills and coins on white boards or paper, and ask them to hold their papers up to their cameras
  • Students can complete the dice-rolling worksheet at home, or they can use a free online app to roll dice
  • Students can use apps and digital manipulatives from sites like ToyTheater to access free dice

This Resource Can be Used As:

  • Daily center activity

BONUS TIP: Laminate the worksheets for ongoing use! These could be used again and again for math workshop, centers, activity stations or rotations.
