Rounding can be very tough, especially for ESE and ESOL students. The number line helps, but is even more helpful when you make it into number hills. Explain it to students as if they are dropping the ball on a number with "the 5's" at the top and "the 0's" at the bottom. Anything before 5 rolls back and after 5 rolls forward. And of course if it lands on the 5's it would technically not move, but let's face it, everyone wants to roll to more, not less, so the 5's roll forward. Use the included anchor charts for group lessons and provide students with their own to place into their journals for independent practice.
This package includes
*3 class anchor charts for rounding to tens, hundreds and thousands.
*3 sets of 4 individual anchor charts journal size for tens, hundreds and thousands
*4 worksheets to practice WITH the number hills at the top
*4 worksheets to practice WITHOUT the number hills at the top
*8 answer keys
ALL of my students were so mastered at this skill by the time FCAT rolled around, they were able to draw out their own rolling hills number line on their test and round it that way.
