Six FREE Place Value Games {Tens and Ones}

This week our class started a unit on Place Value. We started off with reviewing tens and ones. 
My students had a great time reinforcing concepts because they played tons of games to keep it engaging and fun!

This game is played just like the card game 'War', except that instead of comparing one card with your opponent, you compare two. Using only the number cards to 9, students turn over two cards at a time. The first card turned over is their 'ten', the second is their 'one'. Whoever has the highest number gets to keep all the cards. If both players turn over exactly the same number, they have a 'war', and whoever has the highest number gets all the cards. Play continues until one player loses all their cards. Look at how engaged the class is!

WHITEBOARDS

Everyone had a whiteboard and marker. They started the activity by making the grid. I called out a number, and students had to show the number by putting the right numbers in the tens place and the ones place, and also by expanding it to show it as an addition problem. After we had some practice with this, the partners took turns making up a number while their partner wrote it out.

This game is in our math workbook, but I have also seen it on blogs and Pinterest, and I like how this game incorporates active learning. Students worked in pairs, each taking turns to throw 5 googly eyes onto the target. Then they recorded their tosses on the recording page. The fun, free activity I used here is from Rachelle, and can be found {here}. 

COMPARING NUMBERS WITH CARDS

For this activity you need to use a deck of cards, using only the number cards to 9. Students take turns turning over a card and putting it on their mat. Then they compared their number to their partner's number to see who made the highest number.

BASE TEN BLOCKS

I called out a number and had students 'show me' with their base ten blocks, while others wrote it out on a whiteboard. We kept rotating the supplies to the next student with each number. This activity is so simple, yet so helpful for those visual learners who need to 'see' the number and what it is made up of.

ROLL-MAKE-EXPAND

Students rolled 2 dice to make their 2 digit number. They recorded the number under 'roll', drew the number the base ten way under 'make', and divided the number up into tens and ones under 'expand'.

Next week is Place Value with Hundreds, Tens, and Ones...stay tuned for more free learning games!
