Use this activity to reinforce the idea of reading numbers with digits in various place values. This would be a follow up for a lesson on place value.
- Paper Clip (one per student or pair of students)
- Glue Stick
- Place Value Chart
- Number Tiles
- create numbers using the place values of ones through hundred thousands and
- read numbers using the correct place value names.
- Review with students the different place values in a number.
- Hand out spinner, place value chart, and number tiles to each student or pair of students (can be adjusted based on number of students in class).
- Have students cut out all of the pieces.
- Have them glue the place value chart together.
- Hand out the paper clips.
- Explain to the students that they will be using the pencil to hold the paper clip in the center of the spinner to spin for numbers.
- Explain that they will be creating numbers by spinning the paper clip to choose digits and placing the corresponding number tiles in the chart.
- They must go from right to left when placing their tiles on the chart.
- As they complete an entire number, have them come up to the board to write down their number and read it aloud to the class.
- Repeat as many times as needed.
(May follow up activity with a place value worksheet that they will complete independently.)
- Continue the place value chart up to millions, billions, etc.
- Continue the place value chart down to tenths, hundredths, and thousandths
- Have other groups/students read other groups'/students' numbers
Students will be assessed through:
- accurately reading the created numbers and
- correctly completing the follow up worksheet.
