Thanks to some felt and my trusted hot-glue gun, there has been a new lesson on the math shelf providing practice with quantities and place value. Actually, it has been available in the classroom for quite some time, but I haven't had the chance to share it until now. The idea for the lesson came from THIS site, along with the labels for each category.
The cards can also be used in reverse to practice quantity and number symbol.
