The first couple of weeks back at school have flown past and I am getting back into the swing of things! One of the things I’ve had a big focus on these past two weeks in Math is place value. I think it’s so important to get a good understanding of where your class are at with this at the start of the year and to address any misconceptions. I’ve been using my Place Value Task Cards Set to ensure my students have a solid understanding of place value to start the year.
In the pack there are five different activities, which my students have been rotating through. I began my place value unit with a whole class lesson where I had all students completing similar activities. Following that lesson, I moved on to using the cards during rotations and it has really helped to embed the concept with my class.
