Teaching Kids How to Read Large Numbers (Teaching Tip #87)

Written by
In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. In the video I present an active learning strategy that I use in my classroom to help children correctly read aloud large numbers.  Commonly, when reading aloud large numbers, kids will confuse the digit in the hundreds place with the digit in the thousands place or confuse the digit in the thousands place with the digit in the ten thousands place. The featured strategy incorporates clapping and snapping movements that help simplify the task of reading aloud large numbers into smaller, more manageable parts. Give this idea a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
Several weeks ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the “Teaching Kids” channel and posted my first new video of the school year. Each of my new “Teaching Kids” videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
