Teaching the Full Range of Learners

Transforming Classroom Practice in Maths K-6: Place Value

A deep understanding of place value is essential to developing sound number sense. But it’s all too common for our students to simply see place value as just digits in columns. What they need is to understand the relationships between ones, tens, hundreds, etc and the extension of those relationships into decimals.

Whole-day staff workshop (5 hours)
Course Description

In this whole-day workshop, Anita will guide your school’s teachers through the developmental continuum of place value concepts from small whole numbers in Kindergarten to large whole numbers to decimals in Grade 6. She will explain the best ways to support students to develop a deep understanding of place value with whole numbers and then to extend this understanding to decimals with ease. 

Participants will engage in whole-class differentiated tasks using:

  • visual models such as ten-frames and a range of hundreds charts
  • concrete materials including bead racks, dice and place value arrows.

Throughout the day, Anita will model how to embed place value language to meet the needs of all learners in the classroom.
