Place Value Center Mat

I don’t know about you, but I love free and cheap manipulatives.  One of my favorite for teaching math is a deck of playing cards.  Here’s one way I use a deck of cards when teaching math.

 Make the Biggest or Smallest Number – Each player takes 5 cards.  The players then race to see who can make the biggest number, or the playingcardmatplacevaluefreebiesmallest number – depending on the ability of your students.  I have a mat that I use when I put this into centers, so that it is easier for my students.  Grab a free copy of the mat from Google Docs by clicking on the picture.

If this center sounds like fun, there are 7 more ways to use playing cards in math at Raki’s Rad Resources.  Feel free to stop by and check them out.
