Place Value Flip Chart
Create a flip chart for easy place value and digital time practice.
Base 10 charts can be created using any number of place values. Create simple charts to assist students with basic concepts. Create complex charts to challenge students with higher place values and larger numbers. Instead of a comma, consider using a decimal point to represent ones, tenths, hundredths and beyond.
For base ten practice, use charts to identify place values, combine digits to create new numbers and represent numbers in standard form.
Supplies Used: Adhesive Letters, Binding System, Cardstock, Glue, Permanent Marker, Poster Board, Punch, Rings, Yarn
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Die-cut rectangles from various colors of cardstock. Cut ten rectangles of each color (Figure A).
- Use a paper cutter to cut a piece of poster board large enough to be the base of the chart. Cut it tall enough to have room for the labels (Ones, Tens, etc.).
- Die-cut the numbers (0 through 9) for each color. Adhere them to the rectangles with glue. Stack them so the 0 is on top and 1, 2, 3, etc. follow. Adhesive letters can also be used or print the numbers using a black permanent marker (Figures B).
- Use a binding system, small rings or hole punches and yarn to attach the rectangles to the poster board. Leave enough room to allow movement (Figure C).
- Computer or handprint the words underneath the rectangles. Adhere them to the chart (Figure D).

Mathematics, Grade 1: Number & Operations in Base Ten
1.NBT 2b. Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases: The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
Mathematics, Grade 4: Number & Operations in Base Ten
4.NBT 1. Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
4.NBT 3. Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
Mathematics, Grade 5: Number & Operations in Base Ten
5.NBT 1. Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
