This journal insert will help your students represent 6-digit numbers (through the hundred thousands place). This will help your students understand place value, expanded form, and multiples of ten.
Overall, the students have LOVED this journal insert because it represents larger numbers that place value blocks can't represent.
1. Cut out the place value chart.
2. Fold flaps down on border of place value chart and tape in journal. (Do not tape the bottom of the chart down so you place strips in like a drawer.)
3. Cut out each place value strip and put under according place on chart. The end of the strip should say what place it represents. This will hang out from underneath the chart.
**TIPS: When taping in journal, I would face the journal insert to the inside of the journal so the strips don't fall out when students close journal and carry around.**
