The value of PLACE VALUE!

Monday Maths
Part of what we do for Maths on a Monday is to learn a new game for our games box. This Monday we learnt Frolicking Frogs. Frogs eat flies even at Maths time! Frolicking Frogs is a memory game where you have to match the picture of a number (place value blocks) with the numeral. We thought we had better practise making each number with place value blocks before we started. We worked together in groups. When we got to 20, lots of clever thinkers realised they could go to the swap shop. Rather than get a wiggly one to make 19 into 20 they swapped what would have been 10 wiggly ones for one block of ten.
