Whole Numbers & Decimal Place Value Bundle

5th Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

This bundle 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: introduce or review the key vocabulary for place value and decimals the thousandths place, practice the “language” of place value and decimals in strategic, purposeful note-taking partnerships in order to recognize and understand 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: continue to collaborate and practice identifying the value of a number with relation to other places and complete an exit slip to help determine your next instructional steps
  • Segment 3: demonstrate their understanding of these skills by 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.
