Suzie's Home Education Ideas: Printable Place Value Slider On previous blog posts, I have shared some ideas on learning about numbers and place value as well as sharing my printable place value game to show some different ways we have used to learn about two and three digit numbers. I have since adapted one of my earlier resources, the Place Value Slider, to include four digit numbers. I originally got the idea of making a place value slider from here and made a three digit place value slider (pictured below). I can honestly say that it has helped my son really understand two and three digit numbers. To make our four digit slider, we used our printable template and cut out the number strips and place value card then glued it onto some cardboard (picture below).
Using Dot Cards to Build Number Sense - Math Coach's Corner “…that ability to ‘just see it’ without counting is called subitizing.” (Van de Walle)There’s no doubt about it…subitizing is all the rage! It’s not a new concept, though. According to Wikipedia the phrase was first used in 1949. So why are we just hearing about it now? My theory is that the popularity of subitizing is directly related to the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, which stress conceptual understanding and number sense over rote memorization of mathematical procedures and facts.Not surprisingly, John Van de Walle’s books have featured activities related to subitizing for many years. The Wired Campus - Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes D Cole W. Camplese, director of education-technology services at Pennsylvania State University at University Park, prefers to teach in classrooms with two screens — one to project his slides, and another to project a Twitter stream of notes from students. He knows he is inviting distraction — after all, he’s essentially asking students to pass notes during class. But he argues that the additional layer of communication will make for richer class discussions.
