Each student got a digit and a place value name card. They had to go get into one of the line ups at the start of the lesson. I used it to go over many place value skills and vocabulary including; digits, value, place value, periods, comparing numbers, greatest, and least.
I used the cards for another lesson on our standard that moving to the right is 10x, 100x, 1000x more of the digit and moving to the left is 1/10 of, 1/100 of, 1/1000 of the digit.
I used the cards to model exponents for another lesson. Students moved places to see the patterns of exponents and zeros.
I printed out two sets of cards, so all of my students could be an active participant in the lessons that I have done. I did each place value period in a different color and laminated all cards for durability. I printed out extra sheets of zeros.
The possibilities are endless. I will use it when we get into decimal unit.
You can can create your own set of cards or purchase my set of TPT for $4.00
