Prepping & Playing Place Value Practice Game

If you want students to record their answers and turn them in, print a copy of the recording sheet for each student.

If you want to make it just a practice activity that they can use over and over, print out a few of the recording sheets and put them in the reusable dry erase sleeves. That way students can practice, write their answer, and then wipe it clean for the next student.

There are two sets of cards included - two digit and three digit numbers. If you are using this as a center and/or want to reuse the number cards, print them and then laminate for durability. There is also an EDITABLE page where you can type in any number you want. It is already formatted to match the same size and font as the other numbers. 

Protip: If you are using four digit numbers and need to make the font smaller on the editable cards, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure the file is saved to your computer then open it with Adobe (vs just opening it through your email in your web browser which is the default)
  2. In Adobe you will be able to type in the faint blue boxes
  3. To change the font or the size, hit control and e at the same time. A box will pop up that will let you change the font to anything on your computer and adjust the size of the font.

To play this place value practice game, students will select a number card and then fill out the columns on the recording sheet.

Write it - write the number in standard form (ex. 67)
Expand it - write the number in expanded form (ex. 60+7)
Draw it - draw the base ten blocks to make the number (you just just use lines for the tens and dots for ones)
Read it - write the word form of the number (ex. sixty-seven)

Once students have practiced all four ways to make the number, they pick another number card and try it again.
