Rounding to the Nearest 10 and 100

I am super excited that there is only a few days left until school starts. I still have to label everything and get a few little odds and ends finished in my classroom before Wednesday. Today was a gorgeous New England day to have the windows open and feel the breeze. I decided to start on my first math unit. 

I am super excited because this is one of my first projects that I used on PowerPoint to create the center. I was always trying to make centers in the past on Word and it was a little tricky to say the least. I read a few bloggers ( which I cannot remember now) post about how they make the centers and discovered it was much easier than I was making it. So, I sat with the cool breeze blowing making my first center for 3rd grade. 

 The preview page below is a few things that are inside the 30 page file. I plan on having the students use the cards during B.U.I.L.D math and as an around the room buddy search. 

This is where each student is given one card and they are to find their partner. I have made 3 sets
Nearest 10
Nearest 100
Mixed ( They will find 2 partners to both 10 & 100)

The packet also includes:
1 poster
2 Rounding Up or Down games ( with recording sheet)
1 Worksheet

I may also have the kids play memory or goldfish with one another if they complete their work early. 

Please feel free to follow my TPT page and make sure to leave feedback to gain your free credits from TPT for points. Those are a great think to bank when you want something nice from TPT. 

I truly appreciate your time,

  1. Miss Stetson, your games seem like good ways to get students actively thinking about rounding – something that seems to be a problem for many. I especially like the one with the 3 cards. It sounds like a fun way to get have kids interact while talking about math!

  2. Thank you. I really try to have them moving throughout the day. I use a lot of different ways to break up our lessons. Thank you for the comment.
