#### Materials:

• Paper
• Pencil
• One set of index cards marked 1 to 9, with the word “ones” written on each one
• One set of index cards marked 1 to 9, with the word “tens” written on each one
• One set of index cards marked 1 to 9, with the word “hundreds” written on each one
• One set of index cards marked 1 to 9, with the word “thousands” written on each one

#### Directions:

1. Students write any four-digit number they wish on their paper. If more places are to be practiced, the students could write any number digit.

2. Playing cards are shuffled.

3. Leader calls out the number and the place marked on the card. For example, the leader says, “8 in the hundreds place.”

4. If a student has an 8 written in the hundreds place for the number written, the number is circled.

5. Numbers and places are called until a student has circled all the digits in the number written. That student calls out “Right Place!” and wins the game after the digits are checked against the cards drawn by the leader.

6. The game can continue until more players win, or the game can be restarted.

Example:

• Student records 4876.
• Leader calls “Four in the thousands place.”
• Student circles “4.”
• When all numbers in each place are circled for his number, student wins.
