Katie and I had the opportunity to present at Creativity Night at the Utah Association for Gifted Children Conference today. At the Candy Factory, I shared with fellow educators how to teach their students to package tens and ones in a creative and sweet way in order to develop a conceptual understanding of our base ten number system.
Here's a freebie that you can use to teach expanded notation with tens and ones.
Check out our Place Value Unit on TPT for more great resources and materials like an engaging Go Fish Game, a partner order building game, lesson plans, and more student reproducibles!
Here's my little factory workers busy packaging candy orders into long boxes and singles!
