Jack's Magic Beans - Freebie

I bought some of the clear acrylic trays divided into three compartments from Dollar Tree this summer. I added stick-on letters to label each compartment either H, T, or O. 

I'm putting the trays into a Math station with these directions for some fun place value practice. 

Students can play with a partner or alone. They toss beans into the tray and tally up the number of beans that land in each compartment. They record the number they make in standard and expanded form.

Just click on either of the pics above to download the directions and recording sheet.

Let me know if your kids like it!
