Games To Teach Place Value

Aloha friends! Corinna here from Surfin' Through Second.  I want to share with you some fun math games that I use to teach and reinforce place value in my classroom.

Students learn best when they are engaged and having fun.  I always try to incorporate math games into each lesson to reinforce concepts and practice important skills.  Place value is such an important concept. These 5 games are fun and easy to implement in your class.  You can use dice, cards or spinners for each of these games.

I'm The Greatest

Students use number cards 0-9.  They pick a card and have to decide whether to put it in the ones, tens or hundreds place.  The object is to make the greatest number possible. They can play with a partner or you can do it as a whole class. Click {Here} to Download the cards and template.

Place Value Battle

Students use cards or dice.  They can play using 2 digit or 3 digit numbers.  The first card is placed in the hundreds place, the second in the tens and the third in the ones.  The greatest number wins.

10 More 10 Less

Students create a number using cards or dice. Then they write a new number that is 10 more or 10 less.  They can play with a partner. Partners can check answers and then create their own numbers.

Expand It

Students use the spinner templates to spin a number.  They spin on the hundreds, tens and ones. They can write it in expanded form and standard form.  The person who spins the highest number wins.

Money Trade

My students love this game!  You need one and ten dollar bills.  Students choose a banker.  The banker hands out the money.  Students roll the dice.  If they roll a 6, the banker gives them 6 dollars.
Once the students have 10 or more dollar bills they can trade in 10 ones for 1 ten.  The first person to get 10 tens is the winner.

This last game is a lot of fun to play with your class. It's a great way to get those minds thinking!
Some of these games might be something you already use, but hopefully you've come away with some new ideas for your classroom.  Happy Teaching!!

Place Value Fun!!!

Hi everyone!!! It's Latoya from Flying into First Grade!!!
So this week we were studying tens and ones in math.  It was so much fun.   This is what we did today.
We love using technology so we played some interactive games whole group and during small group time.  They loved it!!!  The links are below.
Some Interactive Resources to Use
(Click the Pictures to Go to the Game)
1.  Tens and Ones Online Game- We played whole group and they got to play on the computers.
2.  Making Numbers using Tens and Ones - We played this whole group.  I love that when you build the numbers it keeps up with the value you have done so far.
3. Tens and Ones Equations - I love that this game gives you an explanation if you get a problem wrong.
4. Roasting Marshmallows Tens and Ones - This one is hilarious but very good.  The students loved it.  The bear on this game makes learning tens and ones fun.
5. Working on the tens Place - This game helps students identify how many tens are in a 2 digit number.
For individual work, the students took numbers and identified the tens and the ones.  Then they drew models to illustrate.  They used base ten blocks to build the numbers.
I brought my math groups over to work with me in small groups.  Each group got a basket of cubes.   They made tens and had ones leftover.  Everyone had to give their mystery number.

Next, we looked at models on our paper and  counted the tens and ones to make a 2 digit number.

Earlier in the week we started with just counting tens.  I made a paper for them to do as an assessment.  It is a FREEBIE for you!!!  Enjoy!!!  Click on the Picture!!!!
Next week we will be learning all about expanded form with place value.  Let us know some of your ideas for teaching place value!!!
