I Know Place Value!

Mathematicians boost math skills with a lesson all about place value. A question game challenges learners to guess a three-digit number using oral clues. Collaboratively, peers roll a die to make numbers then write them in a graphic organizer. Scholars model their numbers using Base 10 blocks then verbally share their thoughts and reasoning.

Instructional Ideas
  • Save paper—instead of writing numbers on paper and attaching one to a child, have the pupil stand in front of the whiteboard, write the number on the whiteboard for the class to see while the standing child faces their peers
  • Assign the Independent Practice portion of the lesson during math center rotations, position yourself at that center to listen to model reasoning 
  • Send a set of Base 10 blocks home along with the place value worksheet and directions for family members to continue practicing outside of school 
Classroom Considerations
  • Pupils should be familiar with Base 10 blocks 
  • If class members are new to Base 10 blocks, allow time for them to explore the manipulative and lessen its novelty 
Pros
  • Offers a hands-on approach to practicing place value 
  • Lesson plan directions are written in detail 
  • Comes with a variety of practice pages 
Cons
  • None
