Place Value Yahtzee!

We are learning a new game in my math group - and so far, it has been very fun! It is based on the "Yahtzee" game, but with a place value twist. Children take turns rolling four dice and then building numbers, while trying to fill in all of the categories on their game card. Once all spaces are filled in, the player with the highest number in each category gets a point. We are starting with four digit numbers (thus the four dice) and will work up to 6 digit numbers.

This is a fun way to reinforce lots of place value skills - building highest (or lowest) numbers given a set of digits, reading large numbers, knowing the value of each place, and so on.

If you are interested in playing at home, I can make copies of all materials - just send me an email, or comment below.
