💕Place Value! 💕


💕Hi everyone!

I recently watched a group of students playing a computer game that featured place value.  Watching them play the game, I observed who easily played through the levels and who had trouble advancing.  

As a teacher my mind went to task analyzing what was needed as a foundation in order to understand place value.  


With that in mind here is a checklist to determine if students have the necessary skills to understand place value.

If students don’t have these skills, STOP and teach these essential building blocks to understanding place value or your students will struggle with this cornerstone of mathematics throughout the year.

Young students can develop a strong understanding of place value when teachers assess their knowledge base before diving into place value.  Make sure your students have the foundation they need to create a strong knowledge of place value.

When you are sure your students have mastery of the above elements, move on to place value and watch them zoom!

Happy Teaching!

check out this great freebie

Hi everyone,
As teachers we know how important it is to have a firm understanding of prefixes. Research shows the importance of building students’ vocabulary. When students learn and review prefixes they see relationships between and among languages. Many prefixes have a basis in Latin – also the basis for Spanish. Unknown words or new vocabulary can be figured out by students when they use their knowledge of prefixes.

That being said, check out this great freebie:


This 27 page game packet increases your students' abilities to identify number prefixes in Spanish and gain meaning of unfamiliar words through play. By playing the 3 games included in PREFIJOS DE LOS NUMEROS students become familiar with these great prefixes. They learn that simply understanding and recognizing number prefixes can help them interpret the meaning of unfamiliar words, both mathematical and non-mathematical. This game package includes black line masters for:
-Bulletin board number prefix introduction sheets
-Game board
-Game cards
-Flashcards
-Concentration cards.
-A variety of games
-Assessment
-Activities to send home
-Easy to use teacher's guides
-Easy game assembly

Check out this site for more game and activities for teaching Math Prefixes in any language!

Higher and Lower

Hi everyone,
I stumbled upon a very helpful game to use to enhance the ordering skills of young children.





is a web-based ordering game, where students click on a card to show it's value.  Students order the card from higher to lower value.  You can use the pictures of objects with younger students and the numerical forms with older students. 

This site allows you to choose to order the following concepts:

  • objects or numbers to 10
  • objects or numbers to 20
  • fractions
  • time
  • decimals
  • and more!



The best part is that this game will also allow you to input your own cards for numbers, fractions, and measurement.
