The place value first initial craftivity is very fun for students because they can create their first initial using place value tens and ones blocks. Have students create the first initial of their first name using the blocks (you can print them on colored paper or construction paper). When they are done making their first initial, have them complete the sign that helps them count value of their first initial.
To differentiate this activity, higher level student can make their first and last initial. I have created a sign for first and last initial as well.
