NO PREP Place Value Activity Pack

NO PREP Place Value Activity Pack

Learning place value can be a big challenge for kids – it’s a complicated concept, after all. This NO PREP place value pack is filled with engaging, hands-on and motivating activities. No prepping, no gluing, no cutting. Just print and teach.

The 14 Common Core aligned activities are great to use for math stations, morning work, homework or math lessons.  And if you’re going to use the activities in an American classroom, I included a helpful list of kindergarten and first grade Common Core Standards that align with the pack. Easy peasy.

Most of the activities include multiple versions giving you plenty of ways to differentiate. One student can be working on the numbers 1-10 while another child completes the same activity with the numbers 111-120.

There’s so much included in this set! Check out all the fun details below.
