Anyhoos, one of the standards I need to cover with my little people this upcoming year is to read, write, represent, and compare whole numbers through the millions. The teacher I am replacing has graciously left me all her files, and they've been a great starting point for planning, but I still want to put my own creative twist on our Place Value Unit, which is our first unit of the year.
I've pinned many place value resources, and loved a representation I saw of place value as a house. I took the idea and ran with it, and came up with a little math craftivity.
I'm planning on having my students color their place value houses on the white copy paper, so their personalities can shine through since we will be completing this the first week of school, but I imagine they would look great copied on construction paper. Copying the templates on construction paper would be a great time saver too! :) My kiddos will also be gluing theirs onto a bigger piece of construction paper to create a little landscape and background, and once all their houses are complete, so we'll have an adorable Place Value Block! :) Which I would have shown you today, but that would have been a whole lot of coloring for me. ;)
My Place Value Block Craftivity is available at my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook stores.
I'll be giving away a FREE copy to the first two people who comment! :) Please leave your email address in your comment!
