Reflection: Joy Place Value in Japanese - Section 2: Place Value in Japanese


A review of place value understanding is important in assessing the mastery of Common Core Standards. One way to work on the place value understanding is to find a new way to present the material. By using numbers in Japanese, students were excited about trying to decipher the Japanese. They were excited to figure out the numbers, so they carefully followed the directions to put the numbers together.

It is always important to find a variety of ways to present the same information as children are working to grasp a new concept. Once is never enough so I try to find new ideas that will build on the same concepts in a novel way. 

The Japanese numbers were novel as well as exciting for the students.
