Place Value is one of the most important math skills that you will teach during the school year. For students to really understand the value of numbers and have a deep understanding of number sense, it’s important that they interact with numbers as much as possible.
Since creating an interactive place value chart where students can physically shift numbers around, I’ve had a much easier time relaying some challenging concepts.
With such a quick shift to virtual learning, I wasn’t sure how I could get students to interact with numbers so closely without a chart for them to manipulate the digits. I decided to make my place value chart digital. Now students can still work with numbers and move them around either on their own device at school or from the comfort of their homes if they’re learning remotely.
I use the charts for various mini-lessons when teaching certain skills. Check out how you can specifically use digital place value activities in 4th Grade and 5th Grade.
How You Can Use the Activities
- virtual teaching on Zoom
- projected on a smartboard in class
- assign to students to complete in the classroom or remotely
