How can we provide opportunities to help students break a number apart and reason about the amount of tens and ones in a number?

How can hundreds charts support students’ work in this unit?

**MP6. ** Attend to precision

What experiences can we provide students to communicate and reason about their understanding of place value?

**MP7. ** Look for and make use of structure

Read and discuss this article about the benefits of playing math games.

Suggestions for students who are struggling...

Work with low teen numbers (11-14) first before moving into work with larger numbers.

Allow students to create place value mysteries independently.

to share with others, or locate files to use, on the wiki. Be sure to
join discussion posts with other colleagues to ask questions, answer
questions, and discuss math.

At
this point in the year only spend time on the activities in the first 2
days of this unit. Students will need multiple experiences with these
activities in a workshop/center format. Feel free to also include
workshop activities on problem solving and counting strips.

During this time, review Classroom Routines from earlier in the
semester or spend extra time each day on the DPI workshop activities.
