Reflection: Naming Numbers to One Million - Day 2! - Section 2: Concept development


Overall this lesson went very well. Most of my students had remembered seeing expanded form in previous years.   Word form proved to be the most the challenging.  Students who are struggling with reading large numbers obviously are struggling somewhat with word form too.

They first must be proficient in reading a large number before than can begin to write it in word form.  Some students ended up taking their paper home to finish as homework.  When I got the papers back it reaffirmed to me why I value class work so much more than homework.  Several papers were done by students' parents.  While some students admitted that they had parental help, others didn't mention it at all, but it was very clear by looking at the work that the parents actually wrote the answers, in particular the word form. 

I fee like this lesson was a good change of pace and let students practice reading larger numbers and think about places.  Many students are getting more comfortable with numbers in the millions and asking if we "get to go" to billions and beyond.
