Hundreds place: The third digit from the right, represents groups of one hundred.

Thousands place: The fourth digit from the right, represents groups of one thousand.

### Materials and Preparation

• Whiteboard and markers
• Place value chart
• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Place Value
• Projector or interactive whiteboard
• Number cards or printable place value flashcards

### Learning Objectives

• Students will identify the place value of digits in numbers up to the ten thousands.
• Students will correctly name the place value positions: ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, and ten thousands.
• Students will demonstrate understanding by completing place value exercises and activities.

### Introduction

Introduce the concept of place value by writing a large number on the board, such as 34,567. Explain how each digit has a different value depending on its position. Use a place value chart to show the positions and their names: ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, and ten thousands.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Break down the number 34,567, explaining the value of each digit based on its position:

• 7 is in the ones place
• 6 is in the tens place
• 5 is in the hundreds place
• 4 is in the thousands place
• 3 is in the ten thousands place Use several examples to reinforce the concept, changing the numbers while identifying the place value of each digit.

### Guided Practice

Distribute place value worksheets from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack. Work through a few problems as a class, asking students to identify the place value of specific digits in given numbers. Use interactive activities like placing number cards on a large place value chart at the front of the class.

### Independent Practice

Have students complete additional worksheets independently from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack. Ensure these include a variety of problems that require identifying place values and matching digits to their correct place value names.

## Support

• Use visual aids such as place value charts and number lines.
• Provide one-on-one or small group instruction for students struggling with the concept.
• Use manipulatives like base-ten blocks to physically represent place values.

## Extension

• Challenge students to create their own large numbers and identify the place values of each digit.
• Provide word problems that involve place value concepts.
• Introduce the concept of comparing and ordering numbers based on place value.

### Assessment

Evaluate students’ understanding through their participation in guided practice, the accuracy of their independent practice worksheets, and their responses on the exit ticket. Use specific worksheets from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack to assess each objective.

### Review and closing

Summarize the key points of the lesson, emphasizing the importance of place value in understanding numbers. Address any common misconceptions, and clarify any confusion students may have. Allow students to ask questions and share their observations.

### Misconceptions

1. Confusing the order of place value positions.
2. Believing the value of a digit is the same regardless of its position.
3. Misidentifying the place value of zero in large numbers.
