Bling out your class blog/website with a STYLISH hit counter. Have students check in on the hit counter for place value work!

The other day one of my colleagues told me she found a blog hit counter in the form of Uno cards that she added to the sidebar of her blog. I was so excited that I started looking up different blog hit trackers and stumbled upon this AMAZING website that has hundreds of hit counters that are absolutely adorable: apples, pumpkins, notepads... You KNOW I had to find something "techie" so I grabbed the computer keys tracker! They do have cute floppy disks but who uses those anymore? There are even ANIMATED trackers:

I think the apple counter is super cute for you primary teachers out there! Apples are added as the numbers of visitors increase to the tens, hundreds and thousands place. I feel like a place value lesson could be sparked with your new class website/blog hit counter:)
                                                
In fact, I have a Digital Place Value Activity in Google Slides that can be found in my TpT store. Students could use these graphic organizer slides as a place value journal. Have them visit your class blog/website once a week and fill in one of the graphic organizer slides that require students to:
  • type the standard form
  • type the word form
  • type the expanded form
  • add 10 to the number
  • subtract 10 from the number
  • drag place value blocks to create the number
Here is an example of a finish slide:


I also included a black and white blank copy if you would rather print and make hard copies:
