Reflection: Intervention and Extension Introduction to Place Value - Section 2: Introduction


As I was reflecting on this lesson, I thought about the students who caught on right away. It probably was not necessary for them to watch other classmates come up and count the base ten blocks, as they seemed to already have a handle on this activity. In the future when I introduce place value, once I see certain students are secure, I might send them off to build numbers on their own, while I still work with the others. I could give these students a list of numbers that have a "tens" and/or "ones" place to build.

Introduction to Place Value

Unit 10: Place Value
Lesson 1 of 2

Objective: Students will be able to understand that numbers are made up of "tens" and "ones".

Big Idea: Kindergartners love sharing their knowledge. In this place value lesson, students use base 10 blocks to count aloud for the class, sharing numbers the teacher has composed.
