    I coteach a 3rd grade inclusion math class. They were horrible at rounding. We put tape on the floor for tens, hundreds and thousands. Then gave then numbers, had them find where the number came in the number line and used a poster to tell wehere to round to. I found that they had no clue what tens or hundred the number came between! We also taught them a song to help with the rounding and went on to practice rounding to the nearest ten and hundred. You can try those things. I left the song we used at school, but if people are interested, I can post it at another time. Best of luck everyone!!!
