Lesson Plan Description

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Numbers and Operations in Base Ten: place value understanding of multi-digit whole numbers and decimals to the thousandths place. Students will learn key place value vocabulary, take helpful notes for reference, complete independent practice of concepts and play a game to reinforce the concept of 10x the value and 1/10 the value.

  • Segment 1: students will recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 what it represents in the place to the left.
  • Segment 2: students will identify the value of a number with relation to other places.
  • Segment 3: students will demonstrate their understanding of the above-mentioned concepts through playing a card game in pairs or small groups.

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