Candy Corn Periods!
Today we did so much reviewing of Place Value Periods using the model of candy corn. The kids really need practice saying and understanding large numbers. Today, I gave each kid a little sticker and they wrote 3 numbers on it. The numbers are in the 100s, 10s, and 1s place. They represent a period. Then they said this number with the people that I picked. Together they said the large number together that was how many candy corn pieces were in their Trick or Treat Bag.😁 We had some large numbers. 
Be sure to get tell them the number they are wearing and have them use those digits for the three periods of millions, thousands, and ones. They persevered! It was very good practice working together and being able to understand the concept that you can find models for math all over the place!
