Penguin Place Value

 The Third Wheel is having a linky party for favorite lesson plans!

Every year my students have problems with place value.  While going over the chart is useful for some, most still don't get it.  This past winter I found the following activity on Katie's blog (Persnickety Pickles).  Katie has since taken her blog down, so I have removed the file.  You can still see images from her lovely creation below.  Here is the link to her TpT store if you would like to see any of her other creations.  My kids loved it - and many were able to comprehend place value. Enjoy!


  1. Your Penguin Place Value is very cute. I'm new to blogging as well. I think you are off on a great start.

    Good Luck!

  3. I absolutely LOVE this penguin place value game. I am going to make it into a file folder game. I send them home with my struggling math students on the weekend. "Family Math Weekend!" :)
