I absolutely love teaching decimals. I have learned over the years that if you teach for deep understanding of concepts, students pick up on the harder aspects of that concept much easier. This packet uses base 10 blocks to teach adding, subtracting, comparing, and ordering decimals.
* a template for base 10 blocks
* a detailed lesson on adding decimals
* a page of independent practice for adding decimals
* a page of word problems for adding decimals
* a detailed lesson on subtracting decimals
* a page of independent practice for subtracting decimals
* a page of word problems for subtracting decimals
* a detailed lesson on comparing and ordering decimals
* a page of independent practice on comparing and ordering decimals
* a page of word problems for comparing and ordering decimals
* a cooperative learning activity for adding, comparing and ordering decimals
* an assessment for adding, subtracting, comparing, and ordering decimals
This packet is exactly how I teach decimals to my 6th grade class. It can be adapted for many different grade levels.
Awesome product! I can't wait to use this in my classroom next year! I am preparing for my first teaching position!

I teach students with autism and other special needs and love the concrete, manipulative aspect of this tool. I am not sure how to take them down the abstract road to thousandths without changing your model and representing 1 as a thousand block, tenths as a flat, hundredths as a rod and and thousandths as a cube. Let me know if you think that won't work! What an innovative way to use my base 10 blocks.
The point of the flat being a 1 is that it is 100 out of 100, or one whole. The rod is 10 out of the 100, or (one-tenth of the flat). And the cube is 1 out of 100, or one-one hundredth of the flat. I didn't teach them the thousandths place until we drew the pictures of them, and then I just drew a small, vertical line to represent it. Thanks for your purchase! I hope that helped. Make sure you go to my blog www.fortheloveofteachingmath.com! I have a ton of great activities that help not only regular ed students, but students with special needs. My latest blog post is my story with an autistic student I took into my classroom this year.
Awesome packet. Not only are the activities great for the classroom - but the pages are user friendly. There is plenty of room for students to work and not feel overwhelmed with too many problems. Thanks!
