    I agree, I think it consist of the various lessons which are most useful to learners and they will persist on learning new things and develop new skills

    Flash cards method with Units,Tens and Hundrets. Distribute them to the whole class. Let them sing ‘One number is for units, two is for tens and three is for hundreds while each raise according to flash cards in hands.

    I agree. Learning through play makes learners enjoy learning. It’s makes learning to be enjoyable, interesting and fun to children

    <div>The method I can use is like this. Using objects grabs their attention and it will be able to get the picture fast</div>

    The tips. They can place tips on their desks, starting from 1 to the 3rd (separately). It’d be more of a pattern. One tip, followed by two tips under and three tips under the two.

    Another way in which learners can learn one to three digit numbers through play is that I can take the learners outside and give each child a one digit number. then I can show them what happens when two learners are joined together and what number they form. Then do the same with three learners.

    I can also introduce place value to learners starting from simple numbers like 2 digits numbers, gives clarity using counters matching tens & units ,use learners themselves to represent number given , then proceed to bigger numbers using hundreds with building blocks , role-playing method will also be used to instill the knowledge of these 3 terms (hundreds,tens and units

    Have objects that you will use as counters such as building blocks, Before starting with the lesson find out if the learners understand or have prior knowledge of units, tens, and hundreds. Then have your own object that you will use to demonstrate the units, tens and hundreds. As you say the number make sure that they say it after you loud and clear, repeat the process until you are sure that they have understood the concept. Then, in groups of 5 with 5 kids per group (depending on the children you have in class), give each group flashcards with three random numbers and ask them to play around with the building blocks and place the unit number aside, the tens aside and hundreds aside. Then allow each group to explain how they have come up with the allocation, they might have different explanations, but what matters is does a learner understands what the unit, tens and hundreds are. if you have learners that are still struggling try another method or just teach units only and only move to tens and hundreds when the concept has been grasped (do not move to the next concept if the child/learner did not grasp the concept).
