### INTRODUCTION

• Begin the lesson by asking students to count to 1,000 as a class.
• Explain that today's lesson will focus on converting the digits in numbers to word form, which means writing out the number in words.
• Display a chart on the board that shows the different place values (ones, tens, hundreds) and examples of how to write each one in word form.

### INSTRUCTION

• Review the place values and their corresponding words with the class.
• Show an example of how to convert a three-digit number (e.g. 346) to word form by breaking it down into its place values (300 + 40 + 6) and writing out each one in word form.
• Provide more examples, both as a class and individually, to help students become more comfortable with the process.

### GUIDED PRACTICE

• Pass out worksheets that include practice problems for converting digits to word form.
• Work through a few problems as a class to ensure understanding and provide support where needed.

### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

Allow students to work independently on the provided worksheets, with support as needed.

### HOMEWORK

• Assign a few problems for students to practice converting digits to word form at home. Progress Monitoring Formative Assessment (10 minutes):
• Check in with individual students and provide additional support as needed.

### EXIT TICKET

• Pass out exit cards and have students convert a given number to word form.
• Collect the exit cards as a formative assessment to gauge understanding.

### ASSESSMENT

1. Exit Card Formative Assessment
2. Progress Monitoring Formative Assessment
3. Summative Assessment 10 question worksheet 8/10 for mastery

### CLOSURE

Review the material covered in the lesson and ask students to share one thing they learned about converting digits to word form.

### EXTENSION

• For advanced learners, provide opportunities to convert numbers to word form beyond 1,000.
• Challenge students to write out large numbers in word form, such as 5,000 or 100,000.

### INTERVENTION

• For students who are struggling, provide additional practice with place value by having them identify the value of each digit in a number. For example, ask them to identify the value of the digit 8 in the number 583.
• Use manipulatives or visuals to help students understand the concept of place value, such as base ten blocks or place value charts.

### VIDEOS

No Video Available

### TEACHING TIPS

Use digit cards to help students visualize the process of converting digits to word form. For example, if a student has a card with the digit 7 on it, they can place it in the ones column and say "seven" to reinforce the concept.

### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

Students may struggle with identifying the value of each digit in a number. For example, they may see the number 356 and think that the digit 5 is worth 50 instead of 5 tens. It is important to review the concept of place value and provide additional practice as needed.

### STANDARD

##### Common Core Standard:

1.NBT.A.1 - Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
