These place value games are perfect for reviewing hundreds, tens, and ones!

It’s hard to believe this is the last week of my Print & Play series with This Reading Mama! We’ve loved creating low-prep games that your children can use to review math and literacy skills. Not only are these games great for summer review, but they’re also perfect for classroom learning centers or independent work.
That’s right, each game can be played by a single player. And my math packs always include simple and more complex games, which make them perfect for children of different ages or for differentiation in the classroom.
This week we’re tackling place value!
This pack includes three games. The first game gives your child the opportunity to count by tens and ones. If this is a new concept for your child, be sure to take some time with manipulatives before playing the game. We own and love base 10 blocks. They’re a great visual!
My Six was familiar with the concept after just finishing kindergarten, so he needed very little assistance. The directions are the same as many of the games in my packs:
1. Put your playing piece anywhere on the board.
2. Move around the board using a die.
3. When you land on a space, count the number of squares represented by the base ten blocks.
4. Find the corresponding number on your bingo board. Dot it or cover it.
5. When you get five in a row, the game is over.
For Game 2, he counted both tens and ones on each space. We like to use simple playing pieces like buttons or transparent counters. The kids dot the answers using one of our favorite supplies, Do-a-Dot markers. Those are worth getting if you don’t own any! I can’t believe how long they last. We’re still on our first set, but I’d like to get the basic rainbow colors next.
Game 3 was a nice review for my oldest, who is entering third grade. She counted by hundreds, tens, and ones and found the corresponding numbers.
P.S. Did you know?

I love this place value game, made an insecure little girl very happy and confident.
Yay! That’s so great to hear, Mel! 🙂
Hi Anna, I love, love, love your Place Value Path game. Using models is a great concrete learning activity. I teach 5th grade math and use base 10 models to explore decimal place value. I would love to have this same activity in decimal form. Would you be willing to create something like this for me?
This is a possibility – I’m looking into it. 🙂
Great game, thank you!
You’re welcome, Amber!
Thank you so much for all of your games! Time and time and time again, I come back to use something. I am a private tutor and your site has become invaluable to me! We have very similar teaching strategies in common. I have such limited time, but I really would like to give back in someway for all the assistance you have given me with this site.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Cathy! My favorite way for readers to “give back” is to tell other parents and teachers about my site. 🙂 I hope you keep finding useful resources here!
thank you very much
I am looking forward to us this with my Special Ed Needs Class
I hope your students enjoy the games, Galeema!

I really want to print the Place Value game but I’m getting all sorts of downloading buttons like Archive Manager for OSX and My Transit Guide that seem to want installation. Do you have a download button of your own on the websit?
It sounds like you are clicking on an ad. Look toward the bottom of the post where it says “Get your place value games HERE.” Click on the word HERE.
