Place Value: Math Center and Guided Math Activities
Place Value is the linchpin of number sense. Students need to understand how our system works. Spend more time on the concrete – use those base ten blocks for five days longer than the book says:}. Also, remember to do the pictorial

Here are some resources:
1. Here are some place value cards
2. I would use these in several ways:
A. Pick a card and write the name.
B. Pick a card and build that number with base ten blocks.
C. Pick a card and draw that number with base ten blocks.
D. Pick a card and show it with paper base ten blocks.
E. Go fish
3. A great resource packet (although the money stuff is Canadian).
