St. Patricks Place Value Freebie

Wow... What a week it has been!  I have been an emotional rollercoaster but sometimes that just happens.  But enough of that... Today was kinda a wash for teaching but man did I get some stuff done.  Our kiddos grades K-5 went to Children's Theatre and saw Pinnochio and our 8th graders went to a Holocaust museum so needlesss to say... my groups were almost all cancelled.  I saw 1 group today and it went quickly.  I took advantage of this empty day and I reorganized all of my worksheets.  I took them out of binders (because it just wasn't working) and put them into files in my filing cabinet.  I cleaned a bit, organized some comprehension activities so that I can just pull them and teach it, and I started on my behavior presentation that I am giving at the beginning of March!  What a productive day.  Don't you just love when you can get stuff done.  I have gotten 3 new kids this week and so I need to get their paperwork done, but Ill do that this weekend...

Now for the freebie... I am putting together some St. Patricks day activities with some clipart I got from Just So Scrappy (Don't you just love their stuff!).  This is a place value activity.  I have a kiddo that really struggles with this concept.  I have a few activities that have the word form written in order and she has caught onto the simplicity/trick of that.  So I made this one with the place value digits listed out of order to try and expand her thinking and push her a bit harder.  It is a matching game (I need to expand my game types... any suggestions?) and it also contains a worksheet.  Hope you enjoy it!  You can Download it here, all I ask is that you leave me a comment letting me know how you liked it.  Do your kiddos struggle with place value?  How do you plan to use it? 

Have a good night everyone!  Tomorrow is Friday and we're off Monday!  YAY long weekend!

  2. I'm not a homeschool mom but I do have my kids do worksheets and activities when they're out of school. We're on Spring Break this next week and this will be a great activity for my 3rd grader. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Can't wait to use this week! Just talking Friday with other teachers about kids struggling with place value!
