Free Place Value I Have, Who Has Game

·

Place value is a tricky concept for most kids, so I have been pulling together lots of hands-on place value activities, including this super fun place value game, to make all of that hard work fun for my five year-old.

Just like the Place Value Concentration game, this freebie is a motivating way to help kids learn the numbers 1-100.  Then, head on over to our shop to grab our Place Value Cover Up!


Getting Ready

I always like printing game cards on cardstock to give them extra durability. If you’ll be using the activity in a classroom, you may want to laminate them too.

In any case, print the Place Value I Have, Who Has (below) and cut apart the cards. Easy peasy.

Place Value Game In a Classroom

If you’re playing the game in a classroom, give each student one card and tell them to keep it secret. (You can give a couple of kids a second card if there are extras.)

I Have, Who Has Place Value Game. Awesome freebie!

Randomly select one child to read her card out loud. The student with the matching card will hold it up and read her card next. Play continues until all of the children have had a chance to read their card to the group.

Place Value Game In a Homeschool

If you’re playing Place Value I Have, Who Has in a homeschool, shuffle the cards and have your child randomly pick one to lay on the ground. Ask him to read the card and then find the pair, laying it down next to the first card. Play continues until all of the cards have been lined up in the correct order.

  1. I have purchased several of your activities and they have helped my granddaughter tremendously. Thank you for sharing youir talent with all of us and also for the freebies.

    1. Hi Dani! The game is designed to be circular so as long as all of the cards have been passed out, they’ll all be played. You could write “START” on the back of one of them and “END” on the card that feeds to it if you’d like. 🙂

  2. How do I download this activity?! I would love to use it for summer school tomorrow and cannot find how to download it for free:)

  3. Hi,
    Is it possible to make one of these for 3 digit numbers? I am currently teaching Grades 1 and 2 and would really like to extend my stronger kids who are working with 3 digit numbers.

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Yes, I’m happy to put together a 3 digit I Have, Who Has! I’m finishing up a couple of big projects at the moment but I’ve added it to my to do list so I’ll start working on it ASAP. 🙂

      Talk to you soon,

  4. My class loves I Have games, but we got stuck playing this one….there are two ’27’ answers. After I have 3, and I have 81. We figured it out, but I didn’t want to modify the cards without letting you know.

    1. I figured that out too Carol-Ann, after using them with my Kindergarten class today. We worked around it, but it was a bit confusing. I just looked at the file again to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake, and I think we will have to play it in the same order as the file is set out. I might have to mark the first ’27’ card so the cycle works properly 🙂

    2. Hi there – I tried to make it work for my class and had mixed them up…is there a way to fix it so there are not two ’27’s’??

  5. Thanks so much for sharing your resources. I use them in y class and as I don’t have a budget for resources, having access to yours is a godsend. There are highly engaging, relevant and rich tasks which my students enjoy.

    1. Hooray Catherine!
      I am so happy that you have found some great resources for your classroom.
