The only thing I could think of would be to go outside and make a big chart on the chalk with squares write in the squares the place value 1s, 10s, hundreds. and decimals if you are to them. then bounce a ball in the correct square when you call it out. Start  with "toss it in the ones, toss to the hundreds.

Once they get the idea down add numbers - I call out a number and you tell me what the place value it or vice versa.

You could also use number flash cards and do a relay- lay all the numbers out on the ground - when I call out a number run it over to the correct place value.

I like this roll, build, draw, write, you can do it with unifix cubes:

Roll, Build, Draw, & Write

Students use the manipulatives to create and then read various pre-taught patterns (AB, ABB, AAB, ABC, AABB, etc).

Materials:

• 20-Sided Die

• Base 10 Blocks

• Recording Sheet

Have you made "ones" and "tens" with popcicle sticks and beans?

Write place value on sheets of paper and toss bean bags?

Anything that will snap together works. He can use square shaped legos! Every time he gets 10 they get snapped together and go into the tens column. Having the rule that if there are 10 they have to be stuck together to make one stick really helps make the whole tens and ones thing concrete. They can really see 2 tens and 3 ones in 23.
