Place Value: Teaching Strategies?
09102009, 05:34 PM


Hello All,
I'm a tenthyear teacher, but this is my first year doing inclusion support for upper primary grades. My kiddos (3rd grade, autism spectrum and/or learning disabilities) are struggling mightily with place value (tens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousandswriting out expanded notation and also identifying which digit represents which quantity in, say, a number like 3456) , and I confess I've never been trained in delivering upper grade math instruction.
Any tips or tools you've found particularly helpful with this skill? Any twominute arguments for why, exactly, it's worth spending a lot of time on it?
