Tips for Teaching Place Value

I hope you’re having a fantastic start to your school year!

Since place value is the first math unit for many of us, I thought I’d share some of my favorite tips, resources, and freebies for teaching place value/numbers in base 10.

This modeling numbers freebie is a fun way to kick off a place value unit and, because of the moveable place value discs, they’re very helpful for your visual learners. (There’s a primary version that goes to the hundreds place as well.)

Subscribers, click here to get the freebie. Not a subscriber? Get the modeling numbers freebie as well as instant access to my ever-growing freebie vault by signing up here.

If you’re in need of more virtual math manipulatives this year, be sure to check out Didax’s place value discs and base 10 blocks.

Implementing a number of the day routine is a great way to review crucial place value concepts on a daily basis.

If you’re looking for a place value unit that’s “hands-on,” ready-to assign, and to quote one buyer, “has everything I need for my students to understand and master this standard” then be sure to check out my 2nd, 3rd/4th, and 5th grade digital place value units.

Lastly, an engagement-boosting digital escape room can help you wrap up your place value unit and/or challenge your high-achievers. They’ll love the primary ice cream theme and upper-elementary camping theme.

Have a great week!
