# Place Value – decimals

This is a gift for Tamara and her amazing kids…

I put together some place value “tents” for modeling decimal numbers to 100ths, that I thought you might find useful.  They are, of course, untried, but if you do use them, let me know what you think and if they need tweaking.  These ones will nest in reverse – that is, i the number 3.21, the largest tent is the 0.01, the medium sized one is the 0.2 and the smallest is the 3. (3 and a decimal point with no numbers following… technically the decimal should not be there, but I THINK it makes sense conceptually when it’s modeled with the kids.)

1. Hi Carole,
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! for coming into our school yesterday and playing with our kids. We all had a terrific time and we all learned a great deal. Thank you also for this fabulous gift. I can’t wait to play with the place value tent cards with my students. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Take Care,
Tamara
