One of our most visited posts through the years has been our place value activities. I thought I would put together a video to share how we covered place value in our homeschool (we did these activities regularly when the kids were roughly 4 to 6 years old. I also have a huge packet of materials (over 100 pages!) that include these hands-on math manipulatives as well as some other math activities we did when the kids were this age. Below you’ll see samples from the fun new Pirate Pack I put together with various math games, hands-on activities and fun math worksheets.
So first, the math video post. This one is about Place Value:

In the video above, I showed how to play the game “Sunny Side Up.” Below are some free cards and instructions for how to play:
