State Standards:

4. NS. 1: Read and write whole numbers up to 1,000,000. Use words, models, standard, and expanded form to represent and show equivalent forms of whole numbers up to 1,000,000.


4. NS. 2: Compare two whole numbers up to 1,000,000 using >, <, and =.

Students worked with reading, writing, and comparing numbers in third grade up to the thousands place. This year, students will work on reading, writing, and comparing numbers up to the millions place. 


There are three ways to write a number. Students will need to be able to write a number in all three ways:

Standard Form : 6,709,354

    Written  Form: six million, seven hundred nine thousand, three                                   hundred fifty-four

 Expanded Form: 6,000,000 + 700,000 + 9,000 + 300 + 50 + 4



Students will also be required to tell the value of a digit in a number. 

Example : the value of the digit 9 in the above number is 9,000



Lastly, students will need to be able to compare numbers up to the millions using inequalities (>, <, =) of two given numbers. 

Example :   894,032  <  894,302




Additional Resources to Use at Home: 

Use Dice: 

  • Roll a dice and create a five, six, or seven digit number. Ask your child to write the value of a given digit, i.e., what is the value of the digit in the hundred thousands place?



  • Roll a dice to create a number in standard form and then have your child write the number in word and expanded form.



  • Roll a dice to create two five, six, or seven digit numbers. Compare the two numbers using inequalities.
