Expand number awareness with our Place Value Lesson Plan, which engages students to identify the place value of digits to the one-millions place. This interactive lesson challenges students to disassemble a number and reassemble it with the digits in the correct place value. Leverage collaborative learning and generalize understanding as students write the display of a spoken number.
Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:
- Display the list of different numbers prepared prior to the start of the lesson. Ask students to read the numbers aloud one at a time. Call on volunteers since some may not know how to correctly read the larger numbers.
- Briefly discuss the meanings of each number, and allow for related student anecdote sharing if possible, related to the numbers.
- Ask students if they know the place value of the digits. Lead the discussion to Place Value.
- Distribute the Place Value content pages. (Use the pages relevant to the grade level or needs of the class.) Read and review the information with the students. Use additional examples to help with student understanding.
- Distribute the Activity pages. Review the instruction. Distribute the glue and scissors.
- Allow students time to cut apart the numbers and glue/paste the digits into the correct place values.
- When the students have completed the activity, review the correct answers. Allow students to read aloud each of the numbers. (Print extra digits for students to correct their wrong answers.)
- Distribute the Practice page. Check and review the work with students sharing responses.
- Distribute the Homework page. The next day, check and review the work with the students.
- In closing, to check for final understanding, say aloud several 3 to 7 digit numbers for student volunteers to display on the board for all students to see. Allow as many students as possible to write a number for display to the class.
