Place value mat

I had to make this place value mat for math class I think it came out pretty cute. It's just a creative fun way to teach place value. I'm thinking I may make a set with Disney cars theme for when my nephews are older. I was sitting here cutting out the hearts after laminating them and thought why didn't I think of that sooner. Grrr. I was thinking I can get the little micro sized cars and make a little garage to symbolize the tens place. I'm going to have to get on it. This stuff is what I love about teaching. The other day I was thinking how it seems like creativity is being taken away with the electronic portfolios and appr. I want to be able to create posters and fun things to help kids learn not buy stuff out of a catalog and teach based on a test. And pray that the kids performance makes me look good. Luckily I don't have to worry about some of the stuff right this second. The life of the sub/grad student is pretty nice. We will see what my future holds when I'm done with school I might just stick with subbing for awhile. Time will tell.

Pin It Now!
