Put some “Woo Hoo!” into studying place value
, by creating a super-cute PVP (Place Value Pumpkin) and for a little "Happy Halloween!" woo hoo, I'm knocking $1 off the packet.
This is an especially fun activity for your students and a nice alternative to worksheets; making it that “extra special something” you can do on party day or for October math practice.
Completed projects turn out absolutely adorable and make an outstanding bulletin board
or hallway display
. I’ve included 2 posters
to help decorate.
You’re sure to get lots of compliments, as the results definitely have that “Wow!”
The packet is very versatile
with lots of creative options
for your students to choose from, which allows you to diversify
Appeals to a variety of ages and abilities
The versatility allows younger kiddos, as well as older students, to create a pumpkin that will have a two, three or even 4-digit number value!
Keep things simple for little ones and limit the number of pieces and options, while challenging older students to create a bigger value for their pumpkins.
Adding arms and legs will add to the total value of their pumpkin, as well as increase the cuteness factor.
I’ve included hats, gloves and shoe patterns too.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
Once children have finished their PVP they figure out the value
of their pumpkin.
I’ve provided several worksheet options
for students to complete, as well as a whole-group activity
Limited time? This makes a super-fun homework
assignment, or another idea is to have students work with a partner or create one PVP in a small group of three, which will divide up the work.
Here’s a fun challenge: Give the small group a total pumpkin value, and see how close they can get to hitting that number.
Create extra pizzazz and 3D pop, by giving students the option to add wiggle eyes, glitter, a pipe cleaner vine, bow, rhinestones, or a pom pom topped cap.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping you and your little “punkins” enjoy making a Place Value Pumpkin Pal.
