# Place Value Hop P3 (Decimals)

This material teaches the fundamentals of multi-place number building and offers students a structured system for pronouncing large numbers and decimals and using manipulatives to build them. The Place Value Hop P3 includes spaces for the ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, tenths, hundredths, and thousandths. Each column on the mat corresponds to a particular place value, with the top row available to place down number cards and the bottom row available to place manipulatives like place value blocks or popsicle sticks to build the numbers. Each column contains the pronunciation of the place value (relative to the whole number) as well as its value both spelled out and numerical.
