Practice place value with this quick, easy and super-fun “Cat in the Hat” laminated place value mat game.
Students take turns calling out a 2 or 3-digit number.
Using a dry erase marker, students write the number on the hat brim and then place that many number tiles in the appropriate columns.
This is also a quick and simple way to whole-group assess.
When students have filled in their mat, they raise their hand.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
The hat and number tiles come in a large, full-page size, as well as a smaller, 2-on-a-page pattern to conserve paper.
I’ve also included a 3D “Cat in the Hat” place value craftivity, that makes an interesting manipulative for an independent center, assessing, or playing a game with a partner.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping Seuss’s hat helps make practicing place value extra fun.
