I'm linking up with Meg from "Fourth Grade Studio" to share a lesson
that really worked well with my kiddos!
This is the first in a series of posts that I hope to link with...
the second Sunday of each month!
Hope you enjoy!
I'm a big fan of The Teaching Channel...
I love watching ideas and activities that work for other teachers...
I'm a visual learner so the video format works well for me!
One of the MOST fun activities the kids and I have tried is called
"The Trashcan Game"
Using dice the kids work in teams to create the
largest number possible with regard to place value!
To learn more about how to play with your students,
watch this short video from The Teaching Channel
I made a worksheet to go with the game, but we ended up just using our whiteboards
and expo markers. The kids worked in teams and were very good about communicating which numbers they wanted to place each number in which value....YEAH!
Here's the worksheet that you're welcome to download...
Take a moment to hop over and see more from the linky!
