# Different Forms Of Numbers Lessons, Tips, and Resources for Your Classroom

Teaching Different Forms Of Numbers can be a lot of FUN! Since 2nd graders have already been introduced to place value in 1st grade, today's lesson is mostly a tip and a shortcut since your students already understand the "why" of the math skill.

Essential Question: What are three ways to write a 3-digit number?

I love a "QUICK PICTURE" to help with math, I call them Quick Pics and it is an EXCELLENT skill for your students during state test taking. All you need is a pencil!

To introduce the different ways students can write a number, start with any three digit number and have your students draw a Quick Pic, I've shown an example in the next graphic.

Example of a number for your students and how to quickly do a Quick Pic for the place value.

More Examples For You to Display For Class

Read the number and draw a quick picture. Then write the number in three different ways.

1. 738

2. 164

3. 379

4. 282

5. 496

* Have a student pick a three digit number with a zero in the tens or the ones and write it down. Exchange white boards, or the piece of paper with a neighbor and have them solve it with a quick pic!

There are many ways to use this Different Forms Of Numbers Center Games Resource, here are a few of my favorite ways:
• Use one page as a game board, cut the other page. Place all those cards face down. Have the students turn over one card at a time, solve and place face up on the board. If they are incorrect, the card returns to the bottom of the pile. The winner is the student who places the final card. OR, for a "no winner" version, the goal is for the students to solve the cards independently, but to completely cover the board together. This version can ALSO be played two ways. One way is with the answer page as the game board, another way is with the math problem page as the game board instead.
• You can also play this game with cutting all the cards and matching up the problems with the solutions.
• For movement, place the problem cards around the room and the student(s) have to solve the math problem and leave the correct answer card at that location. Have a second student check the answers to extend the game.
• Mix all the cards together, with two students, deal 5 cards to each student and then place the remaining cards face down. Use as a Go Fish card game!
• Lay all the cards upside down on the floor and use as a Concentration (some call it Memory) Game!
