    rounding

    Here's a method that worked for my hands-on learners - and it was easy for me to observe and check who got the concept and who still needed help:

    I gave each student a set of number cards - 0-9. Then, I would write on the board something for them to show me by selecting and arranging these cards on their desk. I asked things like, "Fill in 7_ with a number that will make the 7 round up." Or, "Round 6,349 to the hundreds place....to the tens place...to the thousands place."

    The number cards took a bit of preparation, but the kids were eager to show me they could round with them! Happy teaching!
