Place value week

This week has been all about place value! 
I have started to create my own classroom posters in A3. This makes them easier to see and to organize. I also added a small magnet at the back of poster to hang it on the wall. All my walls are great for magnets as I am in a portable. I saw this great idea in Teaching with Style. Thanks!!!
So going back to the Place Value stuff we introduced hundreds. First we created them with dough. We had fun creating numbers with Play Dough.
To work on this unit I have purchased some cool stuff from TPT. Check out:

I specially love Amy Lemon’s stuff when I teach second grade. We used some of the manipulatives in one of her packets with this worksheet. Check out her blog posts about place value.

She makes visual stuff that I don’t need to translate to Spanish.
I also used some freebies. Blair Turner has this great Place Value activity with three different levels. My kids have already gone through level 1 and 2. We worked in pairs and I created the response sheet myself in Spanish. Thanks Blair! Check other free scoot games:
