5th graders are working with numbers up to the billions and down to the millionths.
#1. Write out a number up to the billions and have your child read it back to you.
Example: 4,903,764,002 “four billion, nine hundred three million, seven hundred sixty-four thousand, two”
Click HERE for a really cool website that lets you write in a big number like the one above, then you and your child try to say it, and then it types out what you should have said! Try it out!
#2. Write out a number down to the millionths and have your child read it back to you.
Example: 2.3082 “two and three thousand eighty-two ten-thousandths”
Example: 30.200428 “thirty and two hundred thousand, four hundred twenty eight millionths”
