If you have your interactive place value chart set up, it’s time to get your students interacting with it.
- Read a number to your students and have them form the number in standard form on the chart (whole numbers or decimals)
- Have students create a number and challenge a partner to write that number in different forms
- When comparing two numbers, have students form the numbers on both levels of the chart so that they can see where the numbers differ to determine >, <, or =
- Teach the concept of the relationship between the same digit in different place values (a 9 that is 10x the value of the 9 in the other number)
Head to my Instagram highlights to stay up to date on the latest ways that I use my interactive place value chart in my classroom. I will be continuing to add videos of the ways it can be used to give you ideas.
You’ll find tips on:
- reviewing multiplying and dividing by powers of 10
- comparing numbers (including decimals)
- reading and writing numbers
- displaying numbers in word and expanded form.
