Step-by-Step Guided Lesson
Step 1: Start Video
(Tips: Interact with the video by pausing, to ask questions or discuss information viewed with student.)
Step 2: Teach Lesson
Put a three-digit number on a board or a piece of paper. Who can tell me what this number is? Allow the student to respond.
Today, we will be reviewing place values. Our main focus will be the thousands, hundreds, tens and ones places.
Think back to when I ask them to turn to specific page in their books. Place two 4’s and two 5’s flashcard in front of the student and
create the number 45 and 54. What if your teacher asks you to turn to page 45. You would have to know which number comes first in
order to turn to the correct page. Point to the two sets of flashcards. Which card has the number 45?
Using your flashcards create 2-4 digit numbers and have the student identify the number in ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands
place. Example: You place the following cards in front of the student in this order: 5-8-3 you then ask the student to tell you, which
number is in the tens place (8), which number is in the hundreds place (5), etc.
Repeat until you feel confident that the student can accurately identify the place value of the ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands.
