Halloween Themed Place Value Practice for 2.NBT.2 and 2.NBT.4

I've made it a goal for myself to work on place value more this year. I want to teach it more effectively and have the kids walk out of second grade with a really firm understanding of all of the second grade Common Core standards for place value. With that being said I know I needed to add more to what I currently do using Everyday Math. Since the fall and early winter are filled with fun holidays I decided to use the holiday themes for place value practice.

So, I came up with... Halloween Themed Place Value Practice!

Here is what the cover looks like. If you click on the cover image it will take you to see the item at my Teachers Pay Teachers Store*. If you'd rather go to Teachers Notebook, click here.
* PS Everything in my TPT store is on sale today Oct. 14 and tomorrow Oct. 15!





The beginning of the packet has some practice pages that you could use for in class work, assessments or even homework. Answer keys are included.


I included a set of 20 place value task cards. The cute clip art is from Thistlegirl Designs.


Then I mix in some scissors practice by including some cut and glue activities (there are two different cut and glue sets, one for each standard).





Hopefully it will help my students get even more practice. I plan to use the task cards as match centers and  the cut and glue activities both as centers and "seat work" (as they call in Ramona the Pest, one of my all time favorite book).
