Do your students need extra help counting by hundredths and understanding decimals within 1.00? Or do they have a hard time recognizing that a given decimal is composed of tenths and/or hundredths through 1.00?

Then the Decimals Math Talk Daily Routine is just right for you and your kids!

What is it?

It's an awesome math routine that walks your students through 4 daily questions to build decimal sense. This routine focuses on decimals within the hundredths.

Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
