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.
