The Value of A Word allows students to practice writing numbers in both expanded and standard forms. This activity revolves around a value being assigned to letters of the alphabet in the form of base ten blocks. The students then need to find the value of a word by adding the value of each of the letters in the word to come up with the total. Once the students find the total, they write the expanded and standard forms of the number. Some regrouping applies throughout. This activity comes with The Value of A Word Table along with 5 worksheets for students to complete, each in increasing difficulty. An answer key is also included along with a blank template for the teacher to create an original worksheet. This activity meets or exceeds the Common Core Standards of Mathematics and makes for a great multi-step assignment to practice critical math skills.
