PLACE VALUE ACTIVITIES FOR SECOND GRADE

Do your learners need practice with place value? These second grade place value activities is what you need!

 What is Place Value?

Place value is the basis of our entire number system. This is the system in which the position of a digit in a number determines its value. The number 34,678 is different from 87,643 because the digits are in different positions.

Children needs lots of practice with this skill in order to form a firm foundation for their number sense.

Before second grade, children have usually worked with place value through 99. Before beginning place value to 1,000 review place value to 99. The more you review, the better the transfer to 1,000 will be. Take time practicing the language and interpreting the value of numbers using the language of place value.

 

That’s why I have created these place value centers to review the place value skills learned in second grade.

 

There are 7 different place value activities for second grade in this pack:
