Place Value Review for Incoming Fifth Graders

It’s important to review place value with your fifth graders at the beginning of the year. In this blog post, I’ll go over which math standard you will want to review with your incoming 5th graders.

Teaching Place Value to Fifth Graders

One of the hardest concepts to teach in fifth grade is the value of places. See the standard below.

5.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.

This standard takes the previously taught fourth grade standard a bit deeper. Understanding this standard is really important as it prepares students to understand the meaning of exponents.

Standard to review before you teach 5.NBT.1:

4.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.

-prepares students for understanding how numbers can increase (and decrease) by 10 and 1/10

Students will look at the value of an underlined and circle digit and will compare how much smaller/larger they are.

This 5th grade place value review worksheet is a great way for students to review this fourth grade math skill and prepare them for understanding the 5th grade math standard, 5.NBT.1. (Grab it for free down below!)
