Place Value Worksheets

The concept of place value is often tough for a number of young learners. We have plenty of practice to help you. We start out very basic and give you a great deal of helpful reference tables and charts.



Working With Values (Tens and Ones)

  1. Place Value Tens and Ones - A great stepping stone for students. A great starter page for students. It focuses and guides them through tens and ones places.
  2. Ones and Tens Place Value Cubes - The visual of the 3-D cubes makes it easier for students to understand the concepts. We break out the visual three dimensional cubes to represent ones and tens places. This is a fun one for students that have problems envisioning the concept.
  3. Place Value to 99 Review Sheet - A deep review of all the basics of the core concept. A very deep and complete review of the ones and tens place value.
  4. Know Your Place (Tens and Ones) - Identify if it's a ones or tens place. We identify the place value of an integer within a preexisting number. There are only two different possible answers in this one.
  5. Write the names of the numbers (Tens and Ones) - Name the numbers. We ask students to produce the names of the given numbers now. Again all numbers are under one hundred here too.
  6. Compare Physical Numbers (Ones and Tens Place Values) - You compare just the place value, not the integers themselves. This is a bit of unique greater than, less than activity. You compare the value of the places and not the total numbers.
  7. Matching Names to Numbers (Ones and Tens Place) - This is a commonly tested skill. Match the names and the numbers. The numbers are ninety-nine or less.
  8. Cut and Paste Order Cards (Tens and One) - A fun cooperative review activity for kids. This can be an individual or group activity. There are 3 version present in this printable. You could also mix all three versions together for even more fun.

Working With Larger Values (Ones to Thousands)

  1. Ones, Tens, and Hundreds Ordered Place Value Cubes- The visual is a great way to introduce them to it. This one covers almost all the skills we need with place value. Including writing numbers in words and expanded format.
  2. Know Your Place (Hundreds, Tens, and Ones)- Identify the places. What is the value of the underlined place. Is it a ones, tens, or hundreds place?
  3. Place Value Hundreds, Tens, and Ones - This is a pretty easy one. This is a nice way to introduce the hundreds place. We have students spilt up the numbers in a methodic pattern.
  4. Missing Place Value Worksheet to 100 - Insert the values to make both sides equal. This should be one of the first place sheets students work with. It's very basic.
  5. Missing Place Value Worksheet to 1000 - Same as the one above, we just go a place higher. Fill in the missing integer to get equivalent numbers.
  6. Write Place Values Worksheet to 1000 - Ditto from the one sheet above this. Separate numbers that are in the hundreds.
  7. Compare Physical Numbers (1s, 10s, 100s) - This is outstanding for focusing students on the importance of place value. You can always use the old analogy, "Would you rather have $100, $10, or $1?" That always seems to instantly click with kids.
  8. Matching Names to Numbers - Not as easy as you would think for most kids. Matching names and numbers sounds easy, but 32% of national tested fourth graders did not master this skill last year.
  9. Naming Numbers (Hundreds, Tens, and Ones) - We ask students to generate names. Students have to actually generate and write the names. This gives many children trouble, so tell them to not get frustrated.
  10. Write Place Values Worksheet to 100 - A core skill that only 65% mastered last year. Place the correct place in the value slots. This makes a good transition for students that don't fully understand the skill.
  11. Cut and Paste Order Cards (Ones, Tens, Hundreds) - A fun game you can play with a partner or yourself. 3 versions in 1. This can be a great cooperative or individual hands-on activity for you and your students. There are 3 full versions for you.

More Advanced Level Problems

  1. Place Value Word Problems - These problems are aligned to standards. We have seen many questions like this appear on standard tests. Make sure to read very carefully.
  2. What Number Are You Talking About? - This is somewhat of a puzzle worksheet. This sheet covers all the major skills you will find in this unit. We call this our mastery sheet.
  3. Make the Greatest Possible Number - Rearrange the number to get the max. value. This covers multiple skills including the value of places and comparisons. I always remind students the greatest value equals the greatest numbers first (left to right).
  4. Make the Smallest Possible Number - Arrange the numbers in the order that gives them the lowest overall value. Want a low value? Put the low numbers first.
  5. Make Me Big! - This is a review of the two above worksheets. Arrange the numbers for the maximum or least value based on each section.

Expanded Form of Numbers

  1. Standard to Expanded Form (Ones and Tens Places) - This is your basic introductory sheet. This is the first time that we work on expanded form. We just need to remind students that it is just reverse engineering the addition of the numbers. Wait, that sounds complicated; doesn't it!
  2. Expanded to Standard Form (Ones and Tens) - Students have an easier time with this format. Kids have a very easy time going to standard form. They usually look at it as just finding the sum of the expanded form.
  3. Expanded to Standard Form with Decimals - This can be tricky for some. We practice writing decimal numbers in expanded form. This is where we will lose a few students. Don't let the decimal point scare them.
  4. Standard to Expanded Form (Ones, Tens, Hundreds) - We jump a place higher. We work with 100s and start writing expanded forms. The expanded form just needs to add up to equal the standard form.
  5. Expanded to Standard Form (Ones, Tens, Hundreds) - When in doubt, just find the sum. Students convert expanded numbers into standard form. To them, it feels like basic addition.
  6. Standard to Expanded Form with Decimals (Thousands) - This starts to get a bit cramped. You will find that most students will have difficulty with the decimal portion of this sheet. If you walk them through the first one, the second one will come with ease.
  7. Writing Larger Numbers in Expanded Form Standard - This is a skill that carries into middle school. Students that work off of the first problem will have an easy time with this. It is more of a guided worksheet.

Working With Larger Places

  1. Place Value Puzzle - We ask you to guess the numbers that we describe. We suggest that you only tackle this one after you have a solid understanding of the unit. If not, you will be lost. If you ace this one, you are good to go!
  2. Missing Place Value Worksheet to 10,000 - Fill in the missing places. You need to create matching values on both sides of the equal sign.
  3. Missing Place Value Worksheet to 100,000 - Same as above just a jump up in value. This one steps up the skill a bit more. We randomly mix the level of the values.
  4. Place Value Worksheet to 9,999 - We ask you to name the underlined place. We move up to the thousands place and see how we do. Hopefully we do great!
  5. Place Value Worksheet to 99,999 - Same as above just up in the ten-thousands. We ask you to write the actual vale in words.
  6. Place Value Worksheet to 999,999 - Just under a million, but same as above. We arrive at the highest value recognized by the standards for this skill.
  7. Write Place Values Worksheet to 10,000 - This is an easy, but lengthy worksheet. Place the correct values for each place on the lines. This can really get you into a rhythm.
  8. Write Place Values Worksheet to 100,000 - We jump up the value. We go up to the ten-thousands place again with this sheet. We keep a standard format for students to grow into.

Quick Reference Helpers

  1. Place Value Chart (4 places) - From thousands to thousandths, this lays it out for you. This one will help you learn your hundreds to hundreths or vice versa.
  2. Place Value Chart (6 places) - A very large set of places and it includes decimals. This one covers 6 places on both sides of the decimal. A big help for middle level students.
  3. Billions Whole Number Place Value Chart - We go over every major whole place value. We only work with whole numbers here. We cover every place up to a billion.
