Dahliarw Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 My ds is almost 7. He totally gets place value with manipulatives (i.e. thousands, hundreds, tens, ones and exchanging them like 10 ones for a 10 bar, 10 hundreds for a thousands cube, etc). What he is having trouble with is place value when he sees a number on paper. So if he sees 5621 he'll pull out one thousand cube, two hundreds, etc. I've explained working left to right and the largest number is always on the left. Anyone have any ideas for how to help reinforce this for him? An online game would probably be his preference, but I'm up for activities or worksheets or whatever it takes. I think a couple of extra lessons would cement this for him. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
