This fun, small group or center activity for grades 2-5, encourages flexible and creative thinking as students trade up to turn their pile of place value blocks into a traditional number. It was developed to address non-traditional place value problems often seen on high stakes tests. Since introducing this game, my students have aced these types of problems! When you purchase this item you will receive: game directions (including how to adapt for different grades levels) and three different levels of recording sheets so you can differentiate the game. Another quality product by Caroline Jones!
