This post was one I wrote when my son was 6 years old.

Now on to this entry… We continue to review/reinforce basic math addition facts.

I made this little rocket/planet activity that LD and his
friend have enjoyed.

We also reviewed place value: We built the number 1783 (which separate into 1000, 700, 80 and 3 and stack on top of one another)

Picture (below):

I put a few 1000s together with a brad, just so LD could “see” how many 1000 dots actually were.

We also have done some basic double digit addition, but I’ll need to retake those photos (they’re incredibly blurry!)

We have some place value materials available at this post:  First Grade Math: Addition/Place Value

### Place Value Materials

When my youngest was ready for these activities we got some place value dice that worked really well.  She rolled the dice and builds the number (saying the full number aloud):
