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. 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.

  • 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.
  • Segment 2: students will identify the value of a number in multiple place values (for example: 500= 500 ones, or 50 tens, or 5 hundreds).
  • 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.
