FREEBIE from TpT thanks to Second Grade Cup of Tea. It is geared towards 1st and 2nd grades.
I love using books for all areas of teaching, including for math. Here's a list of the top books to use when teaching place value thanks to Hub Pages.Peterson's Pad.
Here's a FREE place value story recommended for 1st and 2nd graders from TpT (Sarah Sebesta) . I read through this 5 page story and really like the simplicity of it, along with the pictures. It seems like a great addition to my file!
I found this idea on Pinterest, but when I clicked on the picture to go to the link, it only opened the picture larger. If you know where this idea came from, please let me know so that I may properly give credit.
**UPDATE: I created a blackline for this place value game and here goes my 1st attempt to upload it to google docs. I'm crossing my fingers it works! Click on the picture to get your FREEBIE... (hopefully!) :)
Lory's Page gave to 2 free downloads to use a a review or math center.
This first idea is to be used as a math center/station. The directions can be printed along with the game board if you follow my link. Basically, the students are to roll 2 or 3 dice (1 at a time) depending on their skill level. The students place their dice in the column they want, trying to ultimately end up with a smaller number than their opponent. Your students could also practice write their numbers in standard, expanded and written forms for some extra practice and review. This is a game of strategy and fun. I know my firsties would have a lot of fun with this activity!!
This would act more as a review page, but I know the kids would still love it! Thanks Lory for creating and sharing!!
I can't seem to access this page, but looking at the picture I found on Pinterest, I think I can make a judgement on how to recreate this center.
First, I would make a recording sheet like the one shown above. Next I would give each child 2-3 dice to roll to make a number. In the column that says "number" have the child record the number they rolled. For example, if your student rolled a 3, 6, and 2, they would write down 362. The last step would be to have the student glue down the correct place value. Cheerios for the 1's, pretzel rods for the 10's and Chex cereal for the 100's.

Oh and check out what I picked up at Walmart this weekend for only $6.97 for a 12 pack...Mr. Sketch smelly markers!!
I am so excited to use them at my spelling center next year!
