Students in Mrs. Jenna Reid's second grade class got to learn about place value with "Marshmellow Math". Each marshmellow stood for a place value; ones, tens, and hundreds. Students got to stack cereal pieces on toothpicks sticking out from each marshmellow. Then they counted the cereal pieces from each of the place value marshmellows and wrote the number in standard and expanded notation form.
