    • Read and write numbers from 1 to 999
    • Find the number just before and just after.
    • Identify the place of each digit in a number.
    • Arrange numbers in ascending or descending order. 
    • The students already know how to place values up to tens.

    Keywords: numbers, digits, ones, tens, hundreds,  place value, just before, just after, ascending, descending, nearest tens, nearest hundred
    • Warming Up (5 minutes)

    Send a group of numbers via WhatsApp (“24” “87” “16” “472”) and ask the students to read the numbers by sending an audio recording. Then, have the students answer this question: Which of these numbers has 7 tens?

    • Learning Activity 1 (15 minutes)

    Send Video 1 about place value that will explain the term digit and how to read/construct a 3-digit number (Before session). Add questions to the video using  edpuzzle (Link 1) or Playposit. Use this activity (Link 5) as follows: Have students use the correct answers (B or C) to question “A”.

    Then they send the result via whatsapp (screenshot).

    • Learning Activity 2 (15 minutes)

    Send a message via WhatsApp explaining the strategy of arranging the numbers, and send Link 4 to train the student on this goal.

    To check for understanding: Have students send the result of the last game via whatsapp and the teacher privately texts each student who scored low to help.

    • Wrap Up (10 minutes)

    Send Link 6  and Link 9 to be done asynchronously. Assign Link 3 as homework and students can share a screenshot of the results with you. Use Test 1 to assess your students.
