Playing with Place Value

Playing with Place Value


1 - 6


Paul Swan, David Dunstan

A-Z Type

Price $ 27.50


Place value may seem a simple concept but it can be very difficult to teach successfully. There are many materials available to use in the classroom, but which ones work? When should they be used? Respected educator, Paul Swan, presents well-researched approaches which will help you to teach, and your students to learn, place value.

The author supplies a list of commonly-used place value manipulatives, ordered in a progression to assist conceptual development. Australian Curriculum links and assessment ideas are included, as are blackline masters of Gattegno grids, dice digit boards, place value spinners, number expanders, ten frames and Montessori cards. There are year planners for each year level from one to six, which clearly outline the aspects of place value that need to be covered. And of course, lots of engaging games and activities!


Easy to read, packed with value, this is another Paul Swan title that you need to add to your collection.
