This FLEXIBLE PLACE VALUE PACK includes 2 Match Games, which can also be used as SCOOTS or task cards! (Which is IDEAL, because second and third graders needs LOTS of time to work with tens and ones flexibly before we can expect them to nail hundreds... and eventually thousands!

The recording sheet challenges students to show some of the MANY WAYS TO MAKE A NUMBER for deeper understanding of place value and unitizing.

Place value understanding is SO MUCH MORE than identifying which is the tens column or how many ones a number has. Get students ready to use place value strategies for computation by thinking about numbers in ALL the ways they can be broken apart! 45 = 4 tens and 5 ones, but it can also be 3 tens and 15 ones or 1 ten and 35 ones. If students cannot easily add or subtract a ten from any number, then they need better understanding of place value. 2.NBT.A1 focuses on deeper understanding of TENS/ONES.

*2 sets of 12 pairs of cards to match or scoot

*Recording Sheets

*Answer Keys

*3 Follow Up Independent Activity Sheets

Consider challenging proficient learners to make their own match cards with some extra index cards! You can reuse the included recording sheet with students' home-made cards if they earn that honor! (Select the 12 best cards and label them A-L and you have next month's set! IMHO This activity is absolutely worth doing every month!
