Math Work Stations Blog Book Party Week 5

Happy 4th of July to everyone!!!

I am still trying to catch up on by blog book study of Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations. Today my post is in response to Chapter 6: Place Value Work Stations.

Below I will give my answers to the guiding questions on our Math Work Stations Book Mark that I got from Deedee Wills over at Mrs. Wills Kindergarten.

How do you support math vocabulary (math talk) at Place Value stations?
I plan to use math talk cards to help support math vocabulary. I also plan to incorporate math anchor charts and I Can charts.

What student activities help support your student's understanding of place value?
This year I plan to use number lines, hundreds chart, tens frames, base 10 blocks and sticker strips (these are with the investigations program that I will be using in the fall) to help the children better understand the place value system. This is such an important concept in second grade. I will admit that I have relied heavily on our current math series, however, I plan to use many of the resources on other blogs to help support the children's understanding of place value.

What is your student's favorite place value work station/activity?
I love working with the hundreds chart. So I think my children have grown to love to use it also. Many activities I have used in the past has come from the book 1-100 Activity Book from Learning Resources. However, I plan to implement many of the new activities that have been posted over at Oceans of First Grade Fun Linky Party for this Chapter.

This chapter is being hosted by Ms. A at Oceans of First Grade Fun. There is so many wonderful place value activities and ideas you want to check it out!
