I have a lot more boys in my classroom compared to girls this year so I am in the process of revamping my curriculum to make things more competitive and hands on!
We are currently reviewing place value. I decided to create a game where students can work in teams!
I am using tables this year vs. desks so it makes things easier to put kids into teams. Within each team they will receive a small white board and a black expo marker (easier to see this color from far away). Each team will find one person who can write quickly and neatly so I can see their answer.
On the board students will see 3 digit numbers written in either word form or in base 10 blocks. The first team to work together and write the correct number in standard form will win the point!
