How to Use
Understanding that each digit within a number holds a value based on its position is an important concept for kids to grasp. Charts along with hands-on math manipulatives can make this idea more concrete.
For example: with the number 2,345 you can break apart each of the digits.
2 is in the thousands place, 3 is in the hundreds, 4 is in the tens, and 5 is in the ones place.
- 1,000 X 2 = 2,000
- 100 X 3 = 300
- 10 X 4 = 40
- 1 X 5 = 5
When you add up all of the values for the individual digits you get 2,345 as an amount. This means you have 2,345 of what ever item you are counting.
Maybe you have 2,345 total flowers in your garden (which would be awesome) or maybe you have 2,345 rocks in your driveway.
Kids love using basic manipulatives such as this base ten set with these place value charts.
You can even use something as simple as these math cubes or any small object including stones to show amount. Of course, it would be challenging to count out 1,000 but you can use them for smaller amounts.
As a former math and science teacher I remember how excited kids would get to use hands-on manipulatives during math lesson. Its an easy way to make learning place value fun.
