Base Ten Blocks Part 2: Center Ideas and Guided Math Group Lessons

Posted on December 1, 2010. Filed under: Digital Learners, Manipulatives, virtual manipulatives | Tags: , , , , |

Base ten blocks are great manipulatives for practicing place value.  Here are 10 of my favorite virtual base ten sites! I would use these in three ways.  First, I would use them as whole group instruction on an interactive board.  Second, I would have the students work on them during center time at the computers. Third, I would pull small groups to the computers and hold some guided lessons there using these sites.

1. ( I like this game, especially the drumroll and how everything reinforces place value)

2. (this is fun but I never can seem to get the bear to catch ten!)

3. (great for estimating amounts)

4. (be sure to read the instructions at the bottom of the page…great for smartboard teaching)

5.***** (this is an excellent resource for teaching operations with virtual base ten blocks)

Virtual Library Resources:

6. (represent numbers)

7. (base ten block addition)

8. (base ten block subtraction)

9. (base ten block decimals)

10.  (choose grade level and then choose manipulative in this case base ten blocks and then choose background: workmat.)  You can write, color and do some cool stuff on this site!

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki

On Thursday I had to do an impromptu math lesson for my third grade class. I RAN for the Base 10 blocks!! I gave them addition problems using three digit numbers. I had the students show me place value in addition to doing the math. Great solution to a last minute problem!
