Place value partner games and a base ten freebie

The 1st-5th grade Number and Operations in Base Ten partner games are now complete! Here’s a link to the original post I wrote explaining how the partner games are designed to work. You can use the games in Math Partner Game Routines or in math centers or math work stations. They’ve been a lot of fun to create, and I think they’re uniquely helpful for teachers who are implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) because the games include:

  • Integration of higher-level thinking and critical thinking skills (not just rote practice)
  • Hands-on activities through which kids actively construct knowledge: no worksheets!
  • Options for open-ended game play so that students are not “finished” until time is up
  • Challenge activities to extend game play and/or differentiate it
  • Math Talk questions/prompts to encourage students to analyze strategies and reflect orally or in writing about what they’re learning
The games are priced at $1 each, and I’ve bundled them by CCSS domain so you have everything you need for teaching each skill. Here’s the complete collection for the domains I’ve tackled so far:

And here’s a number and operations in base ten freebie for you! These are place value cards which feature numbers in standard form/base ten numerals, expanded form, and word names/number names.You can use these cards for sorting, matching, or whatever games you choose. I’ve included 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 digit numbers as well as decimals to the thousandths so you can print cards to meet a wide variety of student needs and skill levels.

Thanks, Terryl! I’ve gotten a bunch of requests for CCSS math stuff for kindergarten, so it’s definitely on my radar! After I finish the last set of 1st-5th partner games this fall, I’m going to look into it more.
