Place value works into so many other math skills. It is important to understand it.
I also like that you can start simple and build on the numbers you know as you go. So you start small with tens and ones and work up to bigger numbers. It is a fun building math activity for kids to learn with.

Place value is important to learn because it can help with adding numbers and multiplication. It helps you understand carrying and borrowing. And you start out simple and work up to more complex numbers.
Games are such a fun way for kids to learn! They don’t make it feel like work. And it is good to change up how you learn or review something. These make great place value math centers.
We are starting out with tens and ones and hundreds, tens and ones for this game set.
There are two boards for each level. This allows you to work on the math skill you are doing. The numbers are the same for each board but have different options. You have an expanding form and tens and ones or hundreds, tens and ones.
There are two recording sheets that match up to the games. They have space for number, expanding form, drawing and tens and ones or hundreds, tens, and ones.

Ways to use the Place Value Games
There are many ways to use these games mats. You can use them over and over or a single-time use.
Here is a look at how you can set up the place value games. You get them a game piece for the outside of the board, a dice and a dot marker. There is a start on the board you can use. If you don’t have a 6-sided die you can make one from the number dice.
So they roll the dice and move around the outside of the board. As they land on the numbers they find and dot the number in the center. It is super easy to do.
You can even have two play at the same time. I like to use the clear counters for game pieces. You can see through them. Plus they match up nicely to the dot markers.
One thing I love about black and white printables like this is that you can print them on colored paper or cardstock. They are loads of fun in colors. it is loads of fun plus I know that my girls never liked always having white paper for things.
Now there are recording sheets for this. Each sheet has 6 recording spots. This means they make 6 rolls around the mat and record their answers. It is a fun and simple math center for place value.
