A bit of fun math lately:
You put the number cards face down and take turns drawing one and choosing where you want it to go on your game card. If you draw a 9, for example, of course you want to put it in the millions spot. If it's an 7 or 8, you have to take a risk, not knowing whether you or your opponent will ever draw a 9.
Whoever has the highest number at the end of the game, wins. Each has to say their number, which they still can't quite do on their own. But this game definitely helped them with that and helped them have an overall better understanding of place value.
Babbling Abby. I did it a little different. Instead of calling out a number, I just told them to put pieces of O's cereal on each toothpick (or on only 1 or 2 toothpicks, and you could obviously change this up for different age groups).
They replicated what they had done with their drawing. Then, they wrote the number in the box. Eat the cereal off the toothpick. Repeat. Toward the end
