1.teach a game called I'm the greatest. You can give a pre fabricated page with lines for a number or have kids make their own on a piece of paper. Example, if you are doing place value up to thousands you would put 4 spaces on the paper like this _, _ _ _ hundred thousands would be _ _ _,_ _ _.
You spin the spinner from the promethean "place value math station" kids write down the number where they want. The goal is to get the largest number. Kids have to read their numbers out loud. This works well if you have a group sit up by your board and they take turns being the caller while others are writers. Once this is taught students can do on their own in a small group. It can also be played with dice if you don't have a board..
