Rounding numbers two lessons

Rounding numbers two lessons

(0)
Used on two consecutive days for my year 6 class that has a range of abilities. This lesson starts off with two opportunities to discuss the method of how to round numbers. The method I usually teach my class is to circle the place value column you are rounding to. For instance, if you are rounding 456 to the nearest ten , circle the 5. Then underline the number to its right and this will tell you whether you round up or down. The PowerPoint then moves onto differentiated practice questions (answers on next slide so you can check the children’s whiteboards quickly). The final slide has steps to success and a challange question for the class to complete when they have finished their work. The worksheets are differentiated five ways. Two possible options for your LAs (indicated by ), one option for your MAs () and two options for your HAs (). The answers are at the end in case you want your class to mark their own answers and save teacher time! The second lesson is what I did the next day with my class as some of my Middle Ability children still were not secure. I have moved the class onto to rounding larger numbers to the nearest ten thousand and one hundred thousand. The questions are on the slides this time and include answers.

I gave them a reading comprehension on the importance of reading to encourage them to read more! Finally, there is a reading comprehension about Malala Yousafzai to inspire them! The reading comprehensions are mostly suited for MAs and HAs but could definitely be given to some of your higher LAs.

Identify place value year 6

This lesson begins with an activity to see if your year 6s can remember their place value columns by asking them a few questions like this one: What column in the nine in? (in 1,895,765) It then moves onto ‘Guess my number’ where the teacher first models how to do it by saying: My number has 8 hundreds, 4 ten thousands, 2 millions, 7 units. What is my number? Can you write it in digits. To model this, the teacher could use a place value matt or suggest that the children write out the place value columns to support themselves. Challenge write the number in words. This is then followed by similar differentiated practice questions. At the end of the PowerPoint, there is a slide which has three levels. Blue= LA, Orange = MA and Red= HA. There is another slide which is for children below LA. I usually print these sheets off and hand them out accordingly or allow the children to choose their level of confidence! The answers for each question are included on following slides. While the class are working independently, I display the slide with the Learning Objective, spellings and challenge questions which they can complete when they have finished.
