## Printable Place Value Puzzles

Help your students master 2-digit numbers with this match-up puzzle. A teacher has designed this puzzle to help students match up 2-digit numbers with their word version, the number in expanded form, and MAB Block representation.

Reading and writing numbers using different representations is important for several reasons:

• Conceptual understanding – using various representations, such as words, expanded form, and visual models like MABs helps children develop a deep and holistic understanding of numbers.
• Supports diverse learners – children have different learning styles and strengths. Offering multiple representations accommodates diverse learning needs.
• Long-term retention – multiple representations aid long-term retention of mathematical concepts.

## How to Use This Resource in the Classroom

Use this activity to help students identify a range of two-digit numbers and to understand that a two-digit number is comprised of tens and ones.

Print, cut, and laminate each puzzle piece. Place students into small groups and provide each group with a mixed-up set of puzzle pieces. Ask the students to solve each puzzle by matching up each number to its name, expanded form, and MAB.
