Place Value Wall Display

A place value wall display for the classroom.

Use this wall display in your classroom to consolidate students’ understanding of place value.

This resource can be used either as a static display or as an interactive resource. Display the posters all year round to reinforce students’ understanding of the base 10 number system. Alternatively, have students practise their partitioning skills by representing numbers within the display, using any combination of digit cards/place value amount cards/MAB cards.

You may wish to print the components of the display on thick card for increased durability.

The display features:

  • a banner
  • larger/smaller posters
  • place value posters (that include MAB representations)
  • ‘If 10, then trade and move’ posters
  • black column dividers
  • single digit cards
  • place value amount cards (10 or 100 or 1000 etc)
  • MAB cards

Select the components of the display that suit your students’ needs. The display caters for numbers up to millions, but can easily be scaled back and used for two- or three-digit numbers.

It may be necessary to print and cut multiple copies of the column dividers (depending on the number of places you require).

    Would it be possible to make the lines on the cubes darker as they didn't show up very well when I printed them? It could be my printer though. Also would love to see the set continued to thousandths.

      Hi Tracey, We'll take a look at lines on the cubes at our end as well. If we find anything amiss, we'll update the resource. Thanks also for your suggestion to include thousandths. Remember, one can always submit a change suggestion to this (and any) resource using the ‘Suggest a Change’ tab above the comments section. Thanks again for taking the time to get in touch!
