# Lesson Plan Template

• #### Vocabulary

Place value: The value of where the digit is in the number (ones, tens, hundreds, thousands).

Word problem: A mathematical problem presented in the form of a story or real-life scenario.

### Materials and Preparation

• Whiteboard and markers
• Place-value charts (one per student)
• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Place Value Word Problems
• Visual aids (e.g., large place-value charts for demonstration)
• Number cards (0-9)

### Learning Objectives

• Students will be able to interpret and solve word problems that involve place values.
• Students will understand how place values can be used to determine the value of numbers in different contexts.
• Students will be able to explain their reasoning when solving place value word problems.

### Introduction

Begin by discussing how place values are used in everyday situations. Use an example word problem, such as "What number has 6 tens and 7 ones?" Write the problem on the board and discuss how to interpret the place value terms.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Explain the process of solving a place value word problem. Demonstrate with the number 67:

• Write the problem "What number has 6 tens and 7 ones?" on the board.
• Break down the problem: 6 tens means 60, and 7 ones means 7.
• Combine the values to get the number 67.
• Use a place-value chart to visually represent the problem and solution.

### Guided Practice

Distribute place-value charts and the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack for Place Value Word Problems. Work through a few problems together as a class. For example, ask students to solve "What number has 2 tens and 1 fewer one than tens?" Guide them through each step, ensuring they understand the process.

### Independent Practice

Have students complete additional problems from the TeachTastic Worksheet Pack independently. These should include a variety of word problems that require interpreting place values and finding the correct numbers.

## Support

• Provide one-on-one assistance to students who struggle with interpreting place value terms.
• Use manipulatives, such as base-ten blocks, to visually represent place values for students who need extra help.
• Create small group sessions for targeted practice and review.

## Extension

• Challenge advanced students to solve word problems involving larger numbers and multiple place values.
• Provide problems that require students to write their own place value word problems and solve them.
• Encourage students to explore place values in different contexts, such as money or measurements.

### Assessment

Evaluate students' understanding through their performance on the worksheets and exit tickets. Review their answers to ensure they can accurately solve place value word problems.

### Review and closing

Summarize the key points of the lesson, emphasizing the importance of understanding place values in solving word problems. Address any common misconceptions and answer any remaining questions. Allow students to share their observations and what they learned during the lesson.

### Misconceptions

• Confusing the value of digits in different place value positions.
• Misinterpreting the terms in word problems (e.g., mixing up tens and ones).
• Incorrectly combining values when solving the problems.
