Hi I am going to repeat what others have said here, we should not be teaching 'move the decimal place' if admin walked in and saw me teaching what you have printed on this poster they would not be very enthusiastic.

Hi Sharni, We are going to give this resource an update. We'll let you know when the new and improved version is ready to go!

Hi - we should be teaching 'move the numbers' not the 'decimal'. (decimal is an easy/cheat way...but the place value concept must be clearly understood first). Can these be adapted please?

I definitely agree that this is a misconception that is being reiterated on anchor chart.

Hello Bec, As Stephanie mentioned, this resource is still valid for many teachers so changing it might not be the best solution. I agree that place value should be clearly understood first before using short-cut methods. If you'd like to take a look at the link below, we have a lot of resources catering for the learning of place value which you may find useful. https://www.teachstarter.com/learning-area/numeracy/place-value/ Please don't hesitate to contact me if you require any further assistance.

Hi Bec, thank you for your comment. We understand that teachers address mathematical concepts in various ways and that these methods are equally valid. We plan to create an alternate version of this poster to reflect the focus on place value that you mentioned in your comment. We will let you know once our designers have completed this update.
