Place Value Wheels
• In third grade, students need to know
place value to the thousands place.
• The next page has a three digit placevalue wheel. Give students various
prompts, such as:
– Numbers written in word form
– Numbers written in expanded form
– Show the number that is “10 more” or
“100 more” than a given number
• When you want to introduce thousands,
put two place value wheels side-to-side.
You can remove wheels to the left of the
thousands place.
• It’s good for students to see the digits in
“periods.” Period is the word used to
describe the three digits separated by
columns.
