(0)
Each task card comes with a QR code that students can scan on iPads, phones or computers. The QR code immediately pulls up the answer and the work that accompanies that answer. Students can check their work and if they made a mistake, they can use the work to figure out where they went wrong. This version contains 24 task cards designed for years 4 and 5. 12 cards have problems that contain 2 digit divisors and no remainders while the other 12 cards have remainders that will need to be interpreted. The work is shown using the long division standard algorithm. In my class, I print these off and use them in small group. While I'm working with a group of students on a particular skills, I have a couple other small groups working on task cards in which they are writing out the answers and using an iPad to scan the QR code. My colleague across the hall uses her Chromebooks to scan the codes. These cards allow the groups to be self sufficient in making sure that they are practicing correctly.

Dice Place Value Game

Dice Place Value Game

(0)
This game is designed to build fluency with reading and writing large numbers to the millions place. Just add dice! Designed for Years 3,4 and 5 to help students memorize and practice place value of large numbers. What's Included: - Game prep instructions for teacher - 2 score sheets for students with instructions - 3 different variations of the game for differentiation This game was designed for my students to play while in small groups. The goal is a fun way for them to review and practice reading and comparing large numbers. In this game, students take turns rolling dice. Each dice roll, gives the students a number to be placed in one of their empty place value positions. They can then put this number anywhere they want while also trying to figure out where it would give them the smallest or largest value, depending on the variation of the game. Included in this game are directions for three different variations; partners competing to see who builds the largest number, smallest number or reads it correctly. There is also a score sheet at the end. In round 1, student each roll the dice 4 times, trading turns between each roll, to build a number to the thousands place. If the teacher tells the students to get the largest number, the student whose number has the largest value will win the round and receive 1 point while their partner earns 0 points. As an added bonus, I tell my students they must also read their number out loud correctly to their partner. The rounds are designed to increase in difficulty as the game progresses. In round 1 students are playing to the thousands place, however rounds 4-10 they are playing to the millions place. My 5th graders loved it this year and it provided a great way to review those place value skills. Thank you so much for purchasing this product. I hope your students like it as much as my students did.
