Teach your children about number lines with this clever, simple tool made in Microsoft word. A good number line can be hard to find, especially when you need it for specific lessons. They can also take a long time to make!!!!
This number line can be used to teach different concepts. One that I will be using it for is "Rounding to the nearest ten and hundred".
Number lines are a concept that my children find difficult, so I wanted to make it as simple as I could.
The Long Black Lines can stand for TENS or HUNDREDS. The Red Lines stand for FIVES or FIFTIES. That way children will visually see "What Ten or Hundred a number is closest to".
A good idea is to laminate the page and let children draw on them with thin whiteboard markers. That way when they read a question, they can write the numbers in themselves and draw other arrows.
A great idea to use for tutoring lessons as well. Enjoy!!!
