At the end of the year our 2nd graders review place value. It was absolutely perfect timing since Hope and I just finished the Magic of Math Unit One! I was able to pull different activities and whip up plans in no time! Since I don’t have a month of school left, I just chose different activities here and there for the students to complete these last two weeks of school.
On Tuesday we had our M’odd’ster Factory! This is an intro activity in our Place Value unit, but I knew the kids would be so excited to create these cuties, so I went ahead and put it in the plans!! AND Ohmiword, did they love it!!! They were all about creating their monsters and making them as unique as can be.
They got a kick out of spinning for their monster parts!
I took pictures of almost every single one because they were just so darn cute
After we completed our monster stats, I had them name their monsters and give them an age. With the age, they had to show it in expanded form, word form, and standard form on their monster.
This week our 2nd graders have been playing lots of place value games. This time of year it’s crucial to keep them involved and engaged during the day. It’s so easy to tune out and become a babysitter when school is about to end! Place Value Spin reviewed HTO charts, standard form, and expanded form. It also reviewed greater/less than because the person who spins the highest number gets to color for a chance to win!
