Everything's Poppin' Up Place Value

My students need new materials to practice place value skills.

  • $338 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands. My students are learning place value and they often get confused or have trouble visualizing large amounts.

My first grade mathematicians are learning basic skills in math such as adding, subtracting, number sense, and counting money.

They attend a high-poverty school in Wisconsin. Because they are young students, they learn best with hands-on materials.

My Project

I will use the Student Place Value Practice Boards during large group instruction during math lessons. They will be invaluable to explain ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, and millions. The students will review their skills during station time in which students move in groups or pairs to different activities. The Place Value Activity Kits, the Base 10 Stamps Set, Place Value Number Hunt, and Poppin' Place Value Games will be used during these rotations. These new games will reinforce skills in a fun way with friends.

Your support will help my students learn a valuable first grade skill, place value.

It will help them in the future to learn about addition and subtraction, decimals, and money. They will become future mathematicians because of your generosity!
