# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Ones place: The digit in the rightmost position of a number.

Tens place: The digit in the second rightmost position of a number.

Hundreds place: The digit in the leftmost position of a number.

### Materials and Preparation

• Place-value chart
• Number cards
• Markers or pencils
• Worksheet pack (guided practice, independent practice, exit tickets, homework, assessment)

### Learning Objectives

• Students will understand and identify the place value of digits in a three-digit number.
• Students will be able to determine which digit is in the ones place, which digit is in the tens place, and which digit is in the hundreds place.

### Introduction

Introduce the concept of place value by explaining that each digit in a number has a different value depending on its position. Use the number 193 as an example. Write it on the board and highlight the digits.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Explain that in the number 193, the 3 is in the ones place, the 9 is in the tens place, and the 1 is in the hundreds place. Use a place-value chart to visually represent this:

hundreds tens  ones
1           9        3

### Guided Practice

Provide students with several two-digit numbers and place-value charts. Work together as a class to fill in the charts and identify the digits in the ones, tens, and hundreds places.

### Independent Practice

Hand out worksheets with three-digit numbers. Have students use place-value charts to determine which digit is in the ones place, which is in the tens place, and which is in the hundreds place for each number.

## Support

• Provide additional place-value charts for students to reference.
• Pair students for peer support.
• Offer additional practice worksheets for students who need extra help.

## Extension

• Reading: Read a math story that involves place value and ask students to identify the place value of digits in the numbers mentioned.
• Writing: Have students write their three-digit numbers and identify the digits in the ones, tens, and hundreds places.

### Assessment

Use an assessment worksheet from the worksheet pack to evaluate students' understanding of place value. The worksheet will include several three-digit numbers where students must identify the digits in the ones and tens places.

### Review and closing

Review the key idea that each digit in a number has a different value depending on its position. Address any common misconceptions, such as confusing the ones and tens places. Allow students to ask any final questions and share their observations.

### Misconceptions

• Confusing Ones and Tens: Students might confuse the ones and tens places. Reinforce the position of each place using the place-value chart.
• Value Misunderstanding: Students might think the value of a digit does not change with its position. Clarify that the position determines the value.
