Just poppin in quick to tell you about a rounding game that I made after finding a lot of my students were have a difficult time with rounding (even in the 4th grade! Yikes!)
I would ask them questions like "What two tens is 73 in between" and I'd get blank stares. So, I created this number line center that students could use to help them visual what rounding meant.
Take a look:
And yes...in case you're wondering - I DID play this game with myself :) Just like I did this by myself - That's what happens when you don't have access to students all day Monday-Friday!
Then, either as a way to introduce this concept, or as a way to assess, I've included some individual practice sheets (one for nearest tens, one for nearest hundreds).
Scoot on over to Teachers Pay Teachers or Teacher's Notebook to grab it for free! Give it a try and tell me what you think - and of course, you can't let your students play it, you don't have to play it alone in your office like I did :)
