What's the Value? FREEBIE

I am not sure about all of you, but this has been the LONGEST week ever. We changed our clocks for daylight savings this past weekend and it has completely thrown me in a tizzy! I don't know if I am coming or going. YUCK! I wake up and it is pitch black. I question what day of the week it is. I realize I am a day ahead in my mind (not cool). Then I lose track of time in the evening. Seven o'clock rolls around and I finally realize I haven't even fed my kids. What is this? Anyway, Friday is upon us and maybe I can get my act together!

This week we started a new unit in math on place value. This is a concept that most of my kiddos grasped pretty quickly. I wanted to assess my kiddos understanding of standard form, expanded form and number words with a quick and fun assessment. They created place value flip books.

Everyone chose a number between 199 and 999. They wrote the number word, its expanded form and standard form in each of the labeled sections.



During the week, I also had them practice the same concepts on this worksheet for our focus wall. They also had to draw their number using hundreds flats, tens sticks and ones cubes. 



I love that both these activities are quick, easy assessments that only take a few minutes to complete, but give a large value of data and understanding of the concepts being taught. If you would like a copy of the flip book template and/or the place value assessment worksheet you can download them for FREE by clicking on the pictures.

I hope you can use these in your classroom. If you download them, I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think of them. Thanks so much everyone!

  5. I love the number book. I think I'm going to borrow it and change it a little. I teach Kindergarten so it's a little too much for my kids 'as is' but with a few tweaks it will be perfect!

  10. This is a great resource for place value. I love the graphics and the fact that you placed more than one on a page so we can save paper. Thanks.
