Skill 1I Place Value: Word Form through 10,000 (5 digit numbers) Writing the word form of numbers is frequently difficult for students. If they ever ask why they need to learn this skill you can proudly say "To write checks to your cable, phone and utility companies." Stress to students that they are not to use the word "and" when writing numbers in word form except for change to the right of the decimal point. The word "ninety" is often misspelled as "ninty" and "forty" is often misspelled as "fourty"  so watch for these. Look at the
