How these Place Value Activities work

This format is designed to really support a student’s learning and build confidence with place value. Each page has 9 problems and follows the same type of problem.

Here is the pattern of problems in these place value acitivites:

  • Problem 1-rounding to the nearest 10
  • Problem 2-rounding to the nearest 100
  • Problem 3-rounding to the nearest 10 and 100
  • Problem 4-what comes next in the pattern and includes a grid format for the answer to help students practice correctly filling in bubbles on state tests
  • Problem 5-expanded to standard form
  • Problem 6-place value blocks to standard form
  • Problem 7-word form to standard form
  • Problem 8-standard form to word form
  • Problem 9-value of a digit and includes a grid format for the answer to help students practice correctly filling in bubbles on state tests
