There are countless ways to use this download. You can start by passing out a print and go practice page to see what your students already understand about rounding. Using these pages as pre/post assessment will also allow for easy differentiation some students may need to practice only with one mat and two digit numbers while others might be ready to mix up the meatballs and round both two and three digit numbers to the nearest ten.
Each rounding mat has a number line for students to place their meatball on. The mound of spaghetti helps to visualize the act of rounding up and down. Students should place their meatball on the correct number and then slide it to the nearest ten. If using three digit numbers or rounding to the nearest 100, have students use the blank mat. You can laminate them and then students could also fill in the number line on their own.
There are two styles of response sheet for you to use with your students. This can be an ongoing center that you use a new response sheet each week, or use the sheets as a way to differentiate. You can also use the response sheets as another way to assess, call out numbers and have them round.
