Are your students practicing building numbers with base ten? This fun Christmas and Winter Place Value resource will help students learn place value to mastery. Students can create their own number or use the included number cards. Then they use base ten manipulatives and place value cards to build the number before recording it.

This resource is great to use for Christmas but you can also switch out the cards and keep playing all winter! The numbers on the winter cards are different from the numbers on the Christmas cards which allows you to use the same activity longer.

How do I Use this Activity?

When I first introduce this activity, it is used during a whole class lesson. I use the numbers cards and give student partners place value blocks and cards. I hold up a number and students build the number with place value blocks then with place value cards. After building the number, they record the number and draw the place value representation.

After using this activity in a lesson, I place the activity in a math center for Independent practice.
