Popping Place Value Pine Cones ~ A Base-Ten Math Center

I PoPPed into my local dollar store today & (Yipeeeeee!!!) I found these adorable pine cone ornaments!!! Score!!!

So I PoPPed off the hangers & VIOLA! Instant counters! The base-ten rods immediately came to mind. I whipped up a rod strip to lay the cones on in order to make counting organized & simple. Then, devised the number sentence mat for recording. 

I laminated the mats so that they can be dry-erased in a math center for reusing.

You can download the base-ten counting strip & recording sheet/mat here.
