Math Resources ~ Place Value

Place Value Organizer

One of my summer projects is to organize my math materials so that I will be better prepared to teach a math class next year. While going through my materials, I found a number of resources I felt would be useful to others. I am providing them in a series of blog posts. If you find this post helpful, check back. As I continue to organize my materials, I will provide additional resources. Here is a great place value organizer.

This resource contains the foldable place value chart that I used with my fifth-grade math students. Interactive notebooks help my students immensely. I hope yours will benefit by creating some of these
organizers as well. Good luck and have fun!.

Common Core State Standards
Understand the place value system.

Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.

Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

Organizational Tip

I use a three ringed binder to organize my math foldable organizers. I place the original printables into a page protector along with the copies. The pieces are easy to find during class when I am ready for the students to create the organizer. Plus all my organizers are located in one place. This is a huge timesaver.

Page protectors are a great way to organize foldable graphic organizers.
