Resource 2: Templates for arrow cards

If possible, prepare the cards in three different colours by printing this resource on coloured paper, or by adding colour to them yourself. This helps to emphasise the concept of place value, and also makes it easier for the students to organise the cards. It is also a good idea to make one larger set for yourself to use when you are demonstrating how to make numbers to the whole class.
