To review creating, writing, comparing, and rounding numbers to the millions, ask your child to carefully read the instructions and then complete the "Working With Big Numbers" sheet. As she works, check your child's work for this lesson. Look for patterns in items that she missed, and go over them with her, providing time for her to correct her mistakes.
