Place Value Movin' (Freebie)

Does anyone use Expressions to teach math? Our district adopted their basal this year and we are required to follow it. We can't deviate from the text. I'm so sad. I used to LOVE teaching Math in fact I felt like that was where my students did the very best. The main reason I became a teacher is because I love to create. Now I feel like I can't do anything but teach Expressions. I don't mean to dis on it. It is a good program. But I miss teaching math the way I used to. So I guess now I'll have to put my creative juices into creating instead of using them in my own class. :( Can I just say how much I love to teach place value. I have a five year old boy and I really feel like he learns best when he is up and moving. This place value freebie will once again have your kiddos moving around the room. The last place value activity I made did the same thing. If you haven't downloaded it you can download it too. It's also free. I have a couple more ideas up my sleeve for place value too. I'll be making a few more in the next couple of weeks.  







This is the other place value activity if you would like to download it as well. They're both FREE. Just click on the pictures and it will take you to TPT.

  4. Thanks for linking up, Rikki! I agree that most students learn better when they're active (moving)! I'm so sorry about the math mandate....I absolutely HATE when teachers are told HOW to teach!! :( Thanks for sharing the freebie!

    1. I love the idea of clubs too. The students with the necklace could be the president of the club.

  12. Tooooo cute!!! And, our district is becoming tighter and more rigid, as well. I get the whole fidelity thing, but it's kinda tricky to stay motivated when it's too rigid.
