Decimal Street® is a fun way that Math-U-See teaches the concept of place value in a visual way with manipulatives.
A poster of Decimal Street® is included with all of the Math-U-See Integer Block Kits, and many of our customers have created their own versions. Instructions on how to make your own are included in the Primer, Alpha, and Beta levels of Math-U-See; Decimal Street® is intended to be used with the Math-U-See integer blocks.
We love seeing what our creative customers come up with, and wanted to share some of our favorite creations that we found below. Cars seems to be a favorite theme; what other themes and stories can you come up with? It works best when you can adapt it to your child’s interests. You could have a story about people riding bikes, borrowing cooking supplies from a neighbor, or finding a friend to play with.
If you do get creative with your own version, post it on social media with the hashtag #DecimalStreet and tag us so that we can see it.

Decimal Street® Story
We even wrote a story about three little pigs that might sound a little familiar.
