Place Value

Today for math we learned about place value. I was a little caught off guard when I recently noticed the lesson in his math curriculum was coming up and I really wanted to use base ten blocks, since Elliot is such a visual learner, but I had no such luck getting my hands on some before we got to the lesson. I ended up just making my own with card stock and it worked perfectly. He picked up on it so quickly. He really makes teaching him so easy! I think I may end up buying a set of base ten blocks anyhow, considering that my cards were already getting bent after one day and he LOVED using them and I expect for him to ask for them every day.

“Ones, tens, and one hundreds. Oh yeah, I totally get it!”
