Place Value Fun

My kids had a blast this week completing several place value activities.  One activity that is always a hit in my classroom is called Place Value Partners.  It is a simple idea.  There is a Sender board and Receiver board.  Students take turns sending and receiving numbers and then reading the number created.  Both partners have to agree that the number read by the Receiver is read correctly.  This is a great way to practice reading large numbers and placing numbers in the correct place value columns.
I have created a variation of the boards I used and put this activity on TpT.  It is called, "Send Me a Digit."  Please feel free to check it out!  It looks different from the boards you see in the pictures on this blog but, the idea is the same.
