In the mathematics class, place value is considered one of the ‘hard spots’ for the student as well as the teacher. I am glad you addressed this issue in the pullout of Issue II-1 of At Right Angles. Here is a simple game I have used to help children practise their understanding of place value up to four-digit numbers. The objectives of the game are not just to review place value but also to experience the learning of mathematics through physical movement and joint decision-making. Children move about within a room in which each corner has an associated place value, and learn how numbers are read aloud, how ‘exchanges’ are made between corners, and so on
