If you are reading this blog article then you are probably searching for a creative approach to teaching place value. I should note that not all teaching opportunities need to start with major prep and stress. We as teachers need to simplify where we can. Right?
Well, I truly believe that is so, but also feel that we need to add a little spice to our lessons. This is one thing I strive to do and hope that you do as well. I have set out to make learning more fun and I hope you stick around to see one of the things that I developed to practice, reinforce, use for intervention, or to simply compliment your already awesome place value lesson.
I know place value charts are nothing new to place value lessons. My intention is not to claim I created place value charts. I have created place value charts that your students will adore and have fun using as well.
The phone/tablet theme will draw them in and boost morale. Your students (kiddos if you teach homeschool) will most likely beg you to use these. You will have to tell them that they have to wait for multiplication so you can whip out the matching multiplication charts.
What is place value and why do we teach p.v.? Place value is the idea that a number represents a value depending on its location. The reason we teach place value is to help students with things like rounding, regrouping, and addition and subtraction.
The nutshell version - you will not give your students a good math foundation without implementing strong place value knowledge.
Although this blog post is not to teach you specifically about place value, I want to provide a little background knowledge so you will understand the importance of making your students' learning experience memorable.

I remember starting my journey on Teachers pay Teachers a few years back. It was 2012 and there were virtually no videos to help me on my journey. Plus, I live where you can't get internet. I'm serious... country girl problems. They are trying to put in fiber optics - $140 for 1G - per month. No thanks, that's snail speed, I'll just try to keep using my cell phone as a spotless hot spot. NOT THE POINT!
My point is, I want to help you be the most efficient, tpt'er/teacherpreneur/entrepreneur/teacher author... Well, you get it right. I want to help you START OFF being successful. I don't want you to have as many tears as I did and still kinda do. So, in the video below I show you how to make square thumbnails for Teachers Pay Teachers.
The website I use to create my thumbnails is canva.com (not an affiliate). The video takes you through all the steps because honestly, pictures of how to do it will probably not help, I would watch the video.
Anyhoo, below is a list of the reasons I use Canva to give you an idea if you are a scanner and don't like videos.
There are a few things Canva can't do that your other software's can. Below is a short list of a few notable things.
Thanks for sticking around to the end of the post! Since you did check out on of my freebies.
Are you a classroom teacher, admistrator, or homeschooling family that needs an effective report cards for your record keeping purposes? I know that I am, and I hate paying for one each year.
