## Reflection: High Quality Task Working with Numbers up to 10,000,000 Day 1 - Section 4: Elevator Speech

These lesson of Place Value are lesson I teach first in the year. Do not assume your students understand Place Value. It is the cornerstone of the whole year.

Games are a great way for students to work with Place Value and make understanding. My students LOVE learning in this environment.

You don't have to just use these games, get creative. Think dice, cards, anything you can think of to get them excited. Check your local game store, or even thrift stores. There are a lot of games that use place value. Or take a old game and give it new rules!

Do not short change place value. It is too important for the students to not have a solid knowledge of what it means!
