Place Value Activities for the Creative Teacher - Raven Cruz

# Place Value Activities for the Creative Teacher

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.

#### Place Value Charts are Nothing New

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?

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.
