Can I say a number by its name, and can you write it for me? Working in small groups or with the whole class, give your kindergartners a piece of 1-inch graph paper and have them write numbers 0 to 10 and 11 to 20. Next, pass out blank graph paper. In random order, speak a number from 0 to 10 and ask pupils to write it down. Select several different numbers in the 0 to 10 range, and eventually move into the 11 to 20 range. The goal is for young mathematicians to associate the symbol they are writing with the word that is spoken.
In this lesson plan, Writing Numbers With Song, students practice writing their numbers 1-5. Students sing the numbers song and explore how to draw the numbers 1-5 in the song. Students practice drawing their numbers after the teacher has modeled it for them. Students will then partner up and draw bigger more creative numbers.
Those are some long numbers! Scholars write number-form digits in word form and vice versa. The first eight are six-digit numbers and the next eight are seven-digit numbers. There are two examples to get them started. Remind scholars to add commas. You may also want to number these along the margin before printing to make correcting and review easier. Consider extending it by having learners apply this skill to writing checks.
Fourth graders practice saying numbers with values in the hundred thousands. In this numbers in words lesson, 4th graders review a number with millions and billions in it. Students work together to write the words for numerals. Students then complete independent work with numbers in the millions and billions.
Students practice writing numbers in expanded form through dictation and modeling. Individually, they write numbers dictated to them by the instructor in expanded form on a recording sheet. After their numbers have been recorded, students create a model of their expanded notation using base-ten blocks.
Students explore the numbers one through five. Over a three week period, students visit centers in the room to investigate and perform hands-on activities with numbers. They trace numbers, write numbers in shaving cream, count objects, read a counting book, match numbers to pictures, practice writing numbers, etc. As a culminating project, children create a book about numbers.
In whole group practice, children count together and identify how many objects are drawn on butcher paper, increasing the number when they have achieved fluency. In pairs, they count manipulatives. They then copy series of numbers from the board, write numbers for practice, and fill in the blanks with missing numbers. Differentiate for K-3 grade level expectations.
Fourth graders look at numerals and change them into words. In this standard notation instructional activity, 4th graders combine values and write as a new number in words. Students search for numbers in a word search. Students place numbers in a value chart to help them write the number.
Reading and writing numbers is thoroughly covered in this well done slide-show presentation. Learners will see how number and number words correlate in relation to place value. The slide-show is text heavy and could use more visual aids to assist all learners but is highly comprehensive and includes practice problems and good examples.
Pupils identify expanded notation and scientific notation. In this rational numbers lesson, students use a calculator to discover the powers of 10. Pupils practice writing numbers in expanded notation using powers of 10. Students watch a movie segment, practice powers of ten place value equivalencies and play a partner game. Pupils write large numbers in scientific notation.
