Product Description

PLACE VALUE name / initial activity COMMON CORE ALIGNED 1.NBT.2 2.NBT.2 3.NBT.2

I'm always looking for an activity with a take-away product to help my students internalize concepts. We had a lot of fun using this kit in my 3rd grade classroom.

The packet includes colored clipart base ten blocks, but to save on ink I also created a set that prints in black and white. I used that set and then made a class set of copies on yellow construction paper.

Each student cut out the blocks and used the tens and ones to spell out their first name. Younger learners could do this activity with just their initials.

Afterwards they calculated the total value and represented it in tens and ones.

The packet includes several options and differentiated activities so it can easily be modified to meet the varied needs of your learners.

It includes:

colored clip art tens and ones pages (these can be used in many other additional math centers as well so feel free to reuse them)

blacklined clipart tens and ones

intermediate and primary-ruled themed writing pages to use as a math journal or written response

activity page for demonstrating advanced knowledge of place value

and regrouping

a simple cloze activities for younger learners (both for full name and first initial)

Please visit my blog, for daily tips, photos and ideas on organizing and managing a classroom and also check out all of my other products here on TPT.

I am always striving to create products that will save you time and money and try to make them all differentiated to make your job easier.
