What's the value?

We're working with Place Value this week and I thought it would be fun to add some word work into the mix...integration being all that it is :)

We took our math task folders and started working on solving the following tasks...NOTE: this is after the use of models and manipulatives to create tens and ones in numbers....


Interestingly enough...we found that some of us needed to review the definition of vowels and consonants...so we talked about the glue bottles and how vowels are the letters that glue the word together...no vowel...no word...and all the other letters are the consonants...whew...disaster diverted!

We started with a spelling word like 
chore
then we wrote the value of each letter under the letter...

c     h    o    r    e
10   10  1   10  1

Then some friends created a number equation... 10 + 10 + 1 + 10 + 1 =

And others just decided they would count the tens and the ones

And others still decided they would draw a model...like the place value rods and then count the tens and ones...

Lots of thinking and explaining what they thought and how they solved the problems.



We'll add this into the word working as well as a choice for Math by Myself this week to help us use our words in mathematical ways...yeah...

You can download a copy of the tasks  {HERE}...



Enjoy,
