We all think differently. Differentiation is necessary in every classroom. This strategy was used with a student who was unsuccessful with other strategies.
I called this "Family Values." Family value means that each place value (ones, tens, hundreds, and etc.) is a family. Numbers move from one family to another in increments of 10. It is also extremely important to use the correct vocabulary, i.e. 10 ones is ten, 3 tens is thirty, 10 tens is one hundred, 10 hundreds is one thousand, and etc. This worked for him. Then, I created the graphic organizer to accompany the strategy so that it would make complete sense to him.
Please feel free to share this video with your student(s) who may need to see this standard a "different way."
I'd love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!
