Create a vibrant, color coordinated, place value center for your classroom. Using the Chalk It Up! Blank Chart, add colorful library pockets and label them – ones, tens, hundreds, thousands. Use the Chalk It Up! Calendar Days (numbers) to create a number under the pockets. Have students show the build the place value chart with the correct number of jumbo colored craft sticks in each pocket. Extend the activity by having students write the number in expanded notation. 5000 + 100 + 70 + 4
Reprogram the chart with a new number for additional practice. Students can work in partners to create numbers and then check the other student’s answer.
