This October The Elementary Entourage is hosting a Tricks & Treats blog hop where teachers can share a trick they use in their classroom as well as a treat! This year for our hop, I am going to share a math focused trick and treat! At the end of my post, you'll be able to enter to win a $10 gift card to my TpT Store!
We started our year by working on place value so I wanted to give the students a tool to help them look at the digits in a number, whether that be a two digit or three digit number. In small groups, I have been helping the students use these place value boards to separate the hundreds, tens, and ones.
After the students break apart the numbers, I ask them to solve the addition problem for me. I have found it helpful to laminate the boards and task cards so that my groups can use them over and over again!
If students need to, they can also grab the blue base ten blocks that I have for help! I have these readily available and the students know they can get them at any time.
We have a special spot on our room to store math manipulatives. In the last bin, I like to keep game boards and task cards so that are easily accessible for the students!
You can download your own copy of my place value boards here. There are also four sample task cards for you to try out with the boards!
But that's not it! One more treat that I have for you is a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to my TpT store! Just enter below!
