The 3-Place Counter is perfect for learning place value. Students organize blocks by size, with ones on the right, tens in the middle, and hundreds on the left; connecting the physical quantity to how it is written. The dry erase board is great for practicing writing numbers.
The real magic of the 3-Place Counter is when a tenth block is put in, the full holder is ejected! This shows kids that only 0-9 blocks can be in any place. If there are 10, it really becomes the next size block!
