I dont know if its cool or not, but I use dice. I give the students 2 dice and they roll them and try to make either the largest or smallest number and play againest someone else where one die is the tens and the other the ones. the one with say the smallest number gets the point. we play to 20. then increase it to three dice.

Base Ten Blocks

I've used dice and base ten blocks. I called the game- Savings Account.

I put students in groups of 3-4.

Each group would have 2 die- preferably one white and one colored- and a bucket of base ten blocks- units, longs, flats, and one decimeter cube.

One student would be the banker and the rest would be the savers.

Student 1 would shake both die. The colored dice would stand for the tens and the white die would stand for the ones. eg. 4 on the colored die and 2 on the white die would be 42. In the beginning, the student would say 4 longs and 2 units, but eventually they would tell the banker 42. The banker would give them the base ten blocks for their shake. Then the other saver's would shake.

As the students continued to shake, they would need to trade in 10 units for a long, or ten longs for a flat to the banker.

The first student to 500 became the new banker.

Adaptations:
1. Special Needs- I photocopied a flat and a long. I had the student place the units on the long. When the long was filled up, they would trade their units for a long. The longs would be placed on top of the photo-copied flat. When the flat was filled, they would trade the ten longs in for a flat.
2. Students could play up to 1, 000. (Decimeter Cube)
3. Play Checkbook.- Work backwards. Give the students the equivalent of 500 and this time subtract! They learn to trade real fast!

Race to 100: using dice and base 10 blocks. Player one rolls the die and takes that many one blocks. If they have more than ten one blocks they trade for a ten rod. First player to trade 10 tens for a hundred flat wins.

Here are a few I have/who has decks for place value:

I really liked the I have who has game......I know my team will use that real soon. Another idea for place value is to use a deck of cards (without the pict cards) and have the students select two cards and then create the number using base ten blocks. This can also be a good activity for having them write down which is greater or less than.

There is one on the schoastic site called "space chase"

Google it and you'll see it. I just printed it out this morning.

Also, the Virginia Dept. of Education has some games on there... Look at that site too.

Here is what they suggest for 4th:

look under "whole numbers" and scroll down. You'll see several games there.
