I have been preparing for next year and wanted to make nicer signs for some place value games and addition/subtraction games...so here they are. I print the numbers 0-9 on four different colors of card stock. I have four teams and give each team a set of different colored numbers. I call out a number and they must make it (17, 138, etc). Each team that can put the number necklaces on and get into the right order, gets a point. I tried this without place value signs on the ground and it was difficult for my second grade math students at the beginning of last year...so I made place value signs to go with the number necklaces. I have also used the place value necklaces in addition and subtraction team games. I call out a problem and the team must agree on the answer and then put the correct number necklace on. Again, I do this in the beginning of the year to review basic facts.
I plan to print these out (when I decide which set to use), laminate, and string some yarn through the two holes I punch into the top edge. WhaLa...number necklaces. If this sounds like something you would like feel free to download them. Click on the picture to download. Let me know if any of the links don't work (I am having a disagreement with linking things). Link for sign language 5 should be fixed.
