This lesson builds conceptual understanding of decimals through the thousandths place. First students practice reading numbers correctly in word form. Then the work with tables that contain word form, fraction form and standard form where only one of the forms is given to them and they have to complete the other two. This helps build the concept of equivalency between multiple forms of the same number.
The lesson includes:
-Teacher Lead Examples
-Partner Practice Set
-Independent Practice Set
-Challenge page for early finishers
-Answer Key for everything
This lesson would be best for 5th or 6th grade and should be taught early on in your decimal unit because reading decimals correctly is a skill they will need to use on a daily basis.
