This resource will provide scaffolding to students as they learn the process of rounding on a number line. The focus of this resource is on rounding to the nearest hundred within 1,000. However, there are also bonus sections included for rounding to the nearest ten within 1,000.
When we use number lines to round numbers, we allow our students to see how rounding works, which allows them to truly understand it. When you place benchmark numbers and midpoints on a number line, it becomes clear which benchmark a number is closest to!
I’d like to encourage you to stop teaching the rounding rhymes and focus on real, conceptual understanding with your students. Remember that the goal is deep understanding and number sense development, not simply getting a correct answer quickly.
In the Learning to Round section, students will learn about benchmark numbers, how to find midpoints, and how this can help them round to the nearest hundred.
In the Practice and Reinforcement section, students will be provided with opportunities to practice what they have learned and use their new rounding knowledge.
Bonus sections included for rounding to the nearest ten within 1,000.
This resource comes in a PDF print format and a digital format for use with Google Slides™.
What Teachers Are Saying
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "These are great resources to practice along with! The kids really loved using them. Thank you!" Giuseppine R.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "This is a great resource for using number lines and building capacity for rounding!" Jill E.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I used this with my 8th grade intervention students. It helped them learn how to correctly learn numbers. It allowed them to maintain their dignity and still learn something they should have learned many years ago. I highly recommend this." The Unintentional Geek
