We have been rounding, expanding, rolling dice, reading and writing BIG numbers with Zero the Hero.
In this game the children grabbed 1 of 7 place value dice , rolled it , told the class their place value , how many digits in their room and then read their number aloud for me to record it. We then added these rolls to get a HUGE number for someone to read and tell me where the commas were to go.
It was fun and they are learning how to read large numbers and expand their own rolls with a 6 sided dice.
They played two games while completing their worksheets. In each case they were asked to roll one dice 1 digit at a time and decide where to put their roll to make the largest number. Stayed tune for homework rolling a smallest number to expand!
