I Have... Who Has? Place Value Game
Here's another very useful Place Value game. This one focused primarily on reading numbers and recognizing 'place value'. The game follows the familiar "I have... Who has?" format.
The children are given a selection of cards, each with a "I have..." statement, a number and then a "Who has...?" question.
Any person can start by reading out the "I am..." statement and then the question, other players listen carefully and respond if they have the appropriate answer at the top of their card. For example, these 4 cards would all follow each other:
Whoever asks the question on the final card will find that the corresponding answer is on the first card - completing the circle.
There are 30 cards in the file and you need to have all of the cards 'in play' for the game to work. You may need to give some children more than one card, or ask others to work in pairs. However, it is also useful (and can help to keep all children motivated and engaged throughout) if the children work in groups and have a small collection of cards between them. Playing this way means that no one is 'out' at the beginning of the game, and everyone can keep checking the cards throughout.
We know not everyone uses the vocabulary of 'Units', so have duplicated all of the cards using the term 'Ones'.
The complete set of 60 cards are in one downloadable pdf file - see the link below.
