Playing with Place Value

My students need 20 place value practice boards, one teacher board, and 5 sets of place value blocks.

I work in an urban public school with rigorous teaching and under-served students. I teach hardworking and enthusiastic second graders, many of whom are second language learners.

The students enjoy math and need to have an opportunity for more hands-on learning. The state adopted curriculum is heavily weighted on worksheets, but there are so many manipulative's that second graders could benefit from.

After teaching second grade for four years, I realize how important place value is. The students need a strong foundation in understanding place value which then carries over into regrouping, money, and other math skills. I have seen and even borrowed, some place value boards and blocks to use with my students. These materials would be highly valued in our classroom to use on a consistent basis. When the students are using their hands and learning in a way that incorporates several modalities they tend to think they are "playing." They have no idea that learning can be just as fun as playing, and that math is not just about worksheets. These materials could be used year round in our classroom.

You would be giving twenty second graders an enriched education in math by being able to provide these materials. Each of whom would be grateful for the ability to practice place value in a new and exciting way.
