The Place Value Game

I don't know about you, but I find that my students just respond better to math when we play a game.  I am always trying to come up with a way to get a concept to sink in by putting it into game form.  Such was the case when I was teaching place value to the thousandths last week.

math,, teachingblogaddict.comI really wanted to have my groups play some sort of game.  However, creating one takes a lot of thought.  Thought I just didn't want to exert.  So, I went into my trusty old Marilyn Burns book and viola, the perfect game popped out.  The Place Value Game.

This really is a super simple game that the kids in my room just LOVED.  Come on over to read all about how I adapted Ms. Burns' game to suit my classroom.  It may just spark something for you too!
