    Hi, I teach 4th grade and they have the hardest time with place value. This year I have tried using neighborhoods to teach place value. For example, there is the hundred neighborhood which consist of houses numbered 100's, 10's and 1's. Then we cross the highway into the richy neighborhood which is the thousand's. Each time we cross the highway, we go into a new neighborhood which is "richer." Also, each highway is a comma. Hope this helps.
