Expanded Notation (TEK 4.2B) is one of the most difficult concepts to teach in the Place Value Unit. I found a great way to cover this topic by tapping into my students’ love of all things selfie-related. Rather than seeing one long equation to interpret, my students saw fun possibilities to create just the right “photo-booth” accessory combination. Once the look was created, students could show it off for the class and everyone had to write down the standard form of the number on a white board.
This was a favorite lesson!!!
There are 4 pages of photo booth props to use for your lesson or to put at a math station and one page of my notes on how I used this super fun resource.
This is a TEKS centered resource. While others may be “TEKS-aligned,” they often cover Common Core standards as well. My Texas specific resources cover the TEKS and nothing but the TEKS, so that teachers don’t have to spend additional time sorting through what to use and what not to use. I know how precious each and every school day is; there is no time to waste. As with all of my resources, it is designed with STAAR in mind.
