Base Ten Posters with Expanded Notation

These posters represent numbers to 30 using Base Ten blocks. The posters include the numerical and word from as well the quantity of tens and ones and expanded notation. The posters can also be folded in half to create flashcards. Once they are folded in half, glue the back sides together and laminate. Students can use the pictorial model and record the number of tens and ones and its expanded notation or vice versa.

Place Value Clip Cards with Expanded Notation

This Place Value Clip Card set is meant to be used as independent practice during math stations or during small group tutoring. Students count the Base Ten Blocks and clip the correct expanded notation answer with a clothes pin or paper clip.

Option 1: The students can use the corresponding recording sheet to draw a pictorial model of your card and write the expanded notation.

Option 2: The teacher can add a sticker on the back of the card corresponding to the correct answer so the students can check their own answer.

Base Ten Flashcards to 100

This is a set of Place Value Flashcards to 100. They include five different ways to represent the numbers: pictorial representation with Base Ten Blocks, numerical form, number of Tens/Ones, expanded notation, and word form. Ideas for using this resource include:
  • Play “Around the World” to review
  • Create a Tree Map to show various ways to represent numbers
  • Play “Concentration” to match various ways to represent numbers
  • Build numbers using manipulatives
  • Order cards from greatest to least, least to greatest

Printable Base Ten Blocks

Several people have asked for Printable Base Ten Blocks to go along with my lesson on creating Place Value Initials. This set includes a printable sheet of tens, ones, and hundreds in black and white.

Kinder through Second Grade students practice creating radial patterns using wooden pattern blocks. Below are some examples of their work:

Ocean Word Problems

The students used paper fish manipulatives to solve addition and subtraction word problems. Each student could pick their own numbers to use. They then solved the problems. After solving their own problems, they worked with their table groups to  check them.

Balancing Number Sentences

The students used balance scales and manipulatives to demonstrate different ways to make the same sum. This helps them understand two different number sentences that are equal or to find a missing part of a number sentence.

Building Larger Numbers

The students rotated through stations in small groups to build larger numbers with pop cube tens and bean ones. At each station they had a number card telling them what number to build. They then recorded their number on the top flap of a foldable and modeled the number as a picture under the flap. When possible, I like having the students work in small groups to allow them to teach each other and give/receive feedback.

Shape Attributes

As a part of our study of shapes, the students made shapes on geoboards. We discussed that even if shapes a different sizes, their attributes remain the same. As they made the various triangle, square, and square rectangle shapes, they counted the number of sides and vertices. They also drew pictures of their shapes on a geoboard recording sheet.

Area Animals

The students created various animals on one inch grid paper using color tiles. They the colored their animal on another sheet of grid paper. They then paired up with another student to compare the area of their animal with the area of their partner's animal. They then recorded which animal covered the most space and which animal covered the least area.

Measuring Length

The students worked in small groups to measure a lizard family with various non-standard units. They used pop cubes, paper clips, beans, etc. They then ordered the lizards from longest to shortest and compared their findings with other groups.

Pattern Block Fractions

Ms. Willemin taught the students a lesson on fractions using pattern blocks. The students started with a hexagon. They then had to find which two pieces could cover the entire hexagon - two trapezoids. They then had to find three shapes that would cover those shapes - three diamonds. They then had to cover the shape with six triangles. The lesson was to reinforce that fractions are equal and that a whole can be divided into smaller parts.

Ocean Addition and Subtraction

To review addition and subtraction word problems, the students worked in groups to solve two problems using fish clipart. As they worked, we practiced strategies such as counting up or down, using pictures or manipulatives, or identifying related fact family number sentences.
