Great accessible resource for my Year 7s. I presented it as a competition in pairs and as they completed one card, I checked it then gave them the next card. Worked really well, thanks.
This is a set of resources I designed for a low ability year 7 group I teach to introduce the concept of decimals and their size and different ways of displaying them. I focus mainly on one and two decimal place numbers. It could lead to work on ordering decimals.
The student sheet is designed for them to fill in with place value and examples. There is then a shading sheet for tenths and one for hundredths. Finally there are some cards which contain 9 different 1 and 2 decimal place numbers where pupils have to sort into their groups - decimal number version, shaded version (using a 10x10 grid), number line version and a version where the decimal is spelled. This could develop into understanding that, say, 0.4 is larger than 0.18 - a common misconception.
There is a powerpoint attached that works through all this.
Happy to send powerpoint in earlier version or the worksheets in word to allow editing if you want.
Let me know how you get on with them.
I have a website, mrchadburn.co.uk which I'm hoping to upload this and other resources. Please keep visiting as it develops and comments, criticisms keenly accepted.

A basic worksheet designed to help children understand place value of decimal numbers and be able to order decimals.

I have used this a couple of times with my private students. It worked well. I like the idea of starting with money because students are used to comparing prices.
Match the decimals given in words to the number given in digits. Devices within the puzzle allow students to self monitor their work and correct errors. Students like to finish a puzzle, but they don’t always like the jokes they decode! Each puzzle also supports literacy. Students have to split the string of letters into recognisable words to read the punchline. (answers included). If you like this, search for: Place Value - A pack of decimal and fraction puzzles.

Thank you for publishing your resource. It has been selected to be featured in a new secondary maths collection.
What is the value of the 5? Unit, Tenth, Hundredth, Thousandth Multiple choice starter, 10 questions with an answer slide. Very straight forward starter or plenary. Added a second file (value of the 6?) which just deals with units to thousands for a lower ability group.
