This product contains a clear and detailed lesson explaining my method of teaching rounding. This method is grounded in understanding the scale of numbers, recognizing patterns in numbers and understanding the properties of a number line. Your students will gain number sense and develop their internal number line which will allow them to round!

Included you will find:

⭐ Detailed lesson pages with photographs

⭐ Material pages including all materials needed to teach the lesson

⭐ A rounding game in which students can play independently or in pairs in order to practice rounding on a number line. Two versions have been included so your students can practice rounding to the nearest hundred or thousand.

Here's what others are saying about this method

"This is GREAT. I used this last year with my third graders and they actually understood what they were doing when rounding! The strips and visuals are great for cementing their learning. After several weeks of this, they were very proficient at rounding and could do it quickly in their heads. Thanks for putting together such a fabulous resource!

This is an excellent resource for teaching rounding. It combines the visual of the number line with fun and concrete examples! I highly recommend it! "
