Useful resource all year round!
Generic place value charts get confusing when students start to rename numbers. I also find it difficult to model accurately to students how to use a number expander to rename numbers as they are often too small to use at the front of the classroom.
This resource provides a format similar to a number expander and I recommend printing in A3 - the colours also help represent place value houses to link to previous years learning (or help to write a number in words). Also included are three pages with accurate colourings to stick over place value names in order for an easier building of the concept of renaming.
The number 123 567
Spread into a number expander:
1 hundred thousands 2 ten thousands 3 thousands 5 hundred 6 tens 7 ones
confusing right^^ - especially for those kids that cant manage the number expander and how to fold.
By covering the names of particular place values makes it easier for children to see how to rename:
12 ten thousands 356 tens and 7 ones
I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do
Happy Renaming :)
