Decimals Through the Thousandths Place Bundle

5th Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Place value is a fundamental skill to all things math!  Providing our 5th graders have opportunities to use the language of math in explanations with peers helps to build a solid foundation for applying this knowledge to complicated real-life applications.  Your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate and use the “language” of place value and decimals in strategic, purposeful note-taking partnerships in order to read and write decimals to the thousandths place in word and expanded form and base-ten numerals
  • Segment 2: continue to practice reading and writing decimals through the thousandths place correctly with partners and explain the “why” of place value to compare two decimals or fractions to the thousandths place
  • Segment 3: demonstrate their understanding by playing a game where they will create six-digit numbers through the thousandths place and complete an exit slip to help determine your next instructional steps

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
