How to Make a Place Value Flip Chart:
I used 7 colors of paper (2 sheets per color) and folded them into 8 sections. I had my son help cut each section out along the folded lines. Then I numbered each color 0-9 (You will have lots of leftover, so if you want to use the squares for another activity you can. I just thought a different color for each place value would make it less confusing). Have your child help write the numbers, too if they are able.
Hole punch twice along the top of each set of papers and attach them with yarn to some cardboard. I cut a piece from a cardboard box that was 16 in. x 5 in. hole punch through the cardboard as well and secure the papers with string.
Under each section I labeled them with their place, ones through millions. He has been having fun using his place value flip chart to create numbers and see if he knows how to say them. His favorite so far: 9,999,999. Of course.
Love it! Thanks for posting at Math Monday!

I love this one too. Place value can be so difficult. Great activity.
What a neat idea. I’ve seen similar flip books for sale. I’m always impressed when I see mamas like you figure out a way to make things like this.
Joining you from the hop! I have a 3rd grader and a 6th grader. Nice to meet you!
