Have you ever wondered why kids struggle so much with regrouping as they add and subtract? It is because they have trouble thinking flexibly about place value! When thinking about a number like 1,240, kids need to realize that it has not just 4 tens, but 24 tens! It has not just 2 hundreds, but 12 hundreds! The tasks within this product stretch students to not only think about place value in standard ways, but also consider decomposing numbers in more flexible ways using hands on models and place value mats. This product would make an excellent math center, place value review, and is even easy enough to include in your sub plans (answer key provided).
