Place Value Spin

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 3 pages | Years: 1

A fun place value activity for students to use in the classroom when identifying the number of 'tens' and 'ones' in two-digit numbers.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom when exploring place value and when helping students to understand that two-digit numbers are comprised of tens and ones.

Choose between a MAB spinner and a 0 to 9 digit number spinner. Print, cut and laminate a ‘tens’ and ‘ones’ spinner and attach the arrows with a split-pin.

Place students into small groups. Provide each group with a ‘tens’ and ‘ones’ spinner and each student with a worksheet.

Students spin the ‘tens’ spinner and the ‘ones’ spinner then record the two-digit number they have made onto their worksheet.
