We continued working on place value each day this week. On Tuesday, I showed the students a group of ones and 10's blocks on the screen and then they wrote down the number on a dry erase board.
Then on Wednesday, I showed them a number and they represented that number with the blocks. After practicing as a whole group, they worked in small groups taking turns writing down and number and the other students representing it with blocks.
On Thursday, we learned a game where we took turns rolling a dice and then we would put that amount of ones onto the place value mat. As soon as we had ten blocks we could trade the ones for a ten's stick. The students had so much fun! We will be playing several that build upon these skills.
