This language lesson teaches students how to determine the correct meaning of multiple-meaning words using nearby context clues. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will see multiple definitions for the same word and then must choose the word with the definition that matches the context of the sentence. In the second activity, students are given a multiple choice option and they must identify which sentence uses the multiple-meaning word in the same way as the example.
Write Multi-Digit Numbers Using Expanded Form
(B) Represent the value of the digit in whole numbers through 1,000,000,000 and decimals to the hundredths using expanded notation and numerals
This number and operations in base ten lesson teaches students how to write multi-digit numbers in expanded form. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will rewrite numbers into the expanded form. Students will determine the real value of each digit and rewrite the number as the sum of the values of each digit. This is done to reinforce the actual value of each digit in the number.
