I love math! Well, let’s be honest. I don’t love all math. I only love math when it is easy to understand and it is fun. Isn’t that true for everyone, our students included? What we need is a way to make math easy to understand WHILE our students are actually enjoying themselves. Is this even possible? (This is where your rounding decimals freebie comes in).
Yes, that is possible!
Take this rounding decimals freebie (lesson and activity set) for instance. It follows all 5 of my math rules; Digital Math Lessons to send your students, Math Centers, Differentiated choice for performance tasks, Pre and post assessments and Daily math talk routines.….Put them together and they are game changers in any classroom. Learning and fun together as one!
The 5 math rules in my rounding Decimals Freebie
✔️ Pre-made and ready to go! Just present, click, teach and send. The digital transitions allow your students to follow along in class, at home, on their phones when they are bored, etc. The skill is not only demonstrated, but practice questions with answers are also included so that students can self assess their understanding before moving on.
✔️ In person or virtual, I’ve got you covered! This set comes with a question generator game set is perfect for a rotation of centres. Both a digital version and a printable version are included. Since this is just one portion of the fractions, decimals and percents, perhaps it could be one of the rotations along with other learning activities for the unit.
✔️Differentiation is important in all lessons of course but what is even more important is allowing your students to CHOOSE their level of differentiated material. This set includes three levels of problem solving performance tasks that students can choose from, in order to show you what they know, in a level that they feel matches their understanding.
✔️Starting with a mini pre-assessment and a mini post assessment will help your students to see their progress. (This can be used on its own, or in combination with other fraction, decimal and percent assessment piece)
✔️ Daily math talk prompts are key to introducing and reviewing concepts throughout the entire year. This set includes a math talk prompt that you can use to get your students talking about rounding before the unit begins.
