PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Rounding Pocket Chart is used to introduce the rounding of whole numbers and/or rational numbers, specifically decimals. It can be custom designed based on the math needs of your class. Since the Rounding Pocket Chart is a pictorial model, the visual learner can grasp what is actually occurring when you round a number. By having the students place the numbers into the correct Rounding Pocket, it becomes a hands-on activity for the kinesthetic learner. Many examples and illustrations are given in this five page download. Although the Rounding Pocket Chart requires construction by the teacher, it is a resource that will be used over and over again.

I plan to use this as one more way to show rounding. My visual kin-esthetic learners can never get too many hands on ways to learn.
On  February 5, 2013Scipi answered:
It is perfect for those students who learn best that way.

On  November 15, 2011Michelle Walker (TpT Seller) said:
A terrific visual aid for teaching rounding of numbers! I teach my kids a chant. First they underline the digit in the place of the value to which they are rounding...e.g. 10, 100, 1000 etc. Then they say "Look to the right, stick/stay or move" depending on whether they shold go to the next 10, 100 or 1000 or stay with the one they have. It would work quite well after using your clever idea to teach the concept. :)
On  November 15, 2011Scipi answered:
I love chants, songs, etc. I even do these things with my college kids who think that all I do is think about math. Well, maybe!
