Need ideas for reviewing how to read and write numbers in standard, word, and expanded form? I have some quick and easy activities that can help!
This standard requires students to:
- 4th grade: Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
- 5th grade: Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
Allowing students to have a visual way to represent the numbers and their values is helpful for reviewing this skill, particularly when writing numbers in expanded form.
Watch the videos below to see how you can illustrate and review this standard with your students.
4.NBT.2. Reading and Writing Whole Numbers
5.NBT.3a. Reading and Writing Decimals
Having an interactive place value chart is helpful with this skill so that students can represent the number in standard form in order to rewrite it in word and expanded form. They can easily slip the charts into a dry erase pocket (*aff link) to use while working on classwork to show their thinking.
Having the resources ready to go is also incredibly helpful. I laminated and stored each place value activity into a file folder with printouts of student recording sheets so that I could just grab them easily and use them as centers or for interventions with small groups or individual students.
