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.
 

INSIDE YOU’LL FIND:

*Counting forward from a given number,

*Comparing numbers,

*Understanding that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones and

*Finding 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.

KIDS PLAY:

*I Have, Who Has // Class set

*Match Up // Small group game

*Draw the Numbers

*Four Ways

*Roll, Draw and Write

Number Formation Pack

Number Formation Pack

Make learning to write the numbers 0 to 30 fun for kids! This number formation activity pack is brimming with motivating ways to practice writing and recognizing numbers!

Check out all the fun details below.

 

INSIDE YOU’LL FIND:

–> Posters with memorable poems (one for each number) to hang on the wall as helpful reminders,

–> A 0-10 review sheet kids can take home to practice with their families,

–> Plus number activity sheets that work on writing and concept.

 

–> MEMORABLE RHYMES

Teaching kids silly number rhymes is a simple way to help them learn to write the digits 0-9. Once they know those 10 digits, they can write any number under the sun: numbers as small as 15 and numbers as big as 359,461, 209,607.

Introduce one digit at a time by teaching the kids a goofy poem they’re sure to remember.

“Down and around. Then you stop. We finish 5 with a line on top!”

I included large poster sized printables for you to hang on the wall or use for whole class instruction plus a review sheet kids can use to practice in a math station or with their parents at home.

Then continue the fun with rhymes for those tricky teens and twenties too!

 

–> ACTIVITY SHEETS

To help kids connect those numbers with their concept, I designed hands-on number activity sheets (one for each number from 0 to 30).

In all, kids practice 6-7 different ways of making just each number. So comprehensive!
