Get your students practicing math skills with a fun, self checking, center activity. Math Ladders can be used a partner work, but are designed for independent practice on specific skills. Each packet includes a single skill on a variety of different levels to make differentiation easier for you, the teacher. Just keep the table of contents handy and assign students to work (or move up or down in the skill level) on the one they need. Problems are written horizontally so students must line up the digits correctly, adding another layer of accountability for the student.

To play, students solve the problem on the START card. They find the answer on the left side of one of the other cards and place it above their original problem. Then, they solve the problem on their new card and continue until they reach the top FINISH card.

To Set up as a Center:
-Print game boards for each person at the center
-Print enough sets for each person at the center, cut apart & keep in a snack-sized baggie
-Print answer sheets for each student
-Print one answer key to keep at the center (if you want them to check their answers)

Alternatively, you can print a class set of the game boards & the cards and have students cut & paste their assignment.

Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.

Don't forget to grab extra Math Ladder boards (for free!) from my store. I'll be adding more of these (always free!) as the holidays come around, so don't forget to check back.
