BaseTen Place Value Frame Giveaway and a Freebie!

I have a student in my class who had a goal of adding two digit numbers without regrouping.  He has mastered that goal (YEAH!) and I felt he was ready to move onto regrouping. But, when we tried, he had a lot of difficulty understanding the concept, even when I pulled out the base ten blocks.  I was talking to one of the push-in teachers about  possibly using a place value chart with him, but she didn't understand what I was talking about.  Well, low and behold, I got an email from Didax that afternoon advertising this:

Exactly what I was looking for!  I ordered two of them, and I could not have been happier when they arrived!

It does not come with the base ten blocks, but I already had a ton of them on hand.  It did however, come with this handy instructional booklet filled with place value lessons that are all aligned to the common core!

With this particular student, I began at the beginning, making sure that his place value foundation was strong.

I asked him how it would change if we switched the digits around. He quickly changed the place value blocks to show me.


He is ready for regrouping the next time I work with him!

After checking out the ideas for teaching addition with regrouping using the frame, I pulled a small group of students over to work with them. They loved the hands on aspect, and I loved how they talked about their task without any prompts from me!

I love this new tool so much, that I decided to give one away to one of my readers!  Enter to win using the Rafflecoptor below: a Rafflecopter giveaway
