*** GAMES TO GET STUDENTS TO KNOW HOW TO NAME DECIMALS ***
One of the easiest ways to transition from decimals to fractions and back is for the students to know how to properly name decimals. These two games can be tailored for length and ability level to allow all types of classes to play.
Game #1: Students must match up decimal names with decimals. There are cards included that can be printed out and used as a small group or individually. Many of the names can be challenging and it lets students practice and see the decimal and name together.
Game #2: Giant number cards are used to create decimals in groups in front of the class. This activity gets students out of their seats and working together. Make it a competition and have different groups compete to create the correct decimal. Four different activities are described. The teacher can make it as difficult or as easy as they want. The teacher creates the decimals they want to use.
