FREE PRINTABLE PLACE VALUE GAME FOR LEARNING EXPANDED FORM
Expanded form can be a tricky concept but with this game, it’s quick to SHOW kids how separating numbers into their parts can be quick and easy!
The set comes with number cards for each place value, 4 different 10-sided dice and a worksheet for them to practice on.
To play, kids roll the dice and then choose the cards that match for each of the 4 place values. For example, if they roll a 4, 6, 3 and a 9, they might pick the 4 card, the 60 card, the 300 card and the 9000 card. Then they write these numerals into the spaces on the worksheet. By stacking the cards up in size order, largest on the bottom, they’ll quickly SEE the total once they are added together.
They can also practice going the opposite direction by stacking the cards first and then pulling them apart to see the expanded form version.
