Kids practice rounding to the nearest ten, hundred, and to the place value underlined on this math worksheet.

We are working on rounding numbers to the nearest ten this week. It's a tough one for my First Graders. We always do this chant to help them remember the rules for rounding.

Math Coach's Corner: More Skip Counting by Tens off the Decade. Three versions that use the same numbers, but they are increasingly difficult because of the number hint that is shown. Includes a completely blank one you can customize.

Composing & Decomposing Numbers (from Kindergarten Stars)

Students will turn over two cards at a time. The first card is the tens digit and the second is the ones digit. They round that number to the nearest ten. If they are correct, they cover one of those spots on the game board. If those spots are all taken, lose a turn. Play until all spots are covered. The one with the most counters on the board is the winner. ENJOY!!

1.NBT.3_ Roll one or two dice (2 dice--represent tens, ones place). Greater than, less than or equal to.

Fill It In - This would be great to do every day and perhaps include in an everyday learning book.

I made mats like this and my class loves to play. We keep score on the board for who wins each 'hand'. I call out, "Draw 2 (or 3) cards and make the least/greatest number possible." I also made one which includes thousands, for later.

Make paper chains to help students better visualize numbers in the teens

Pretzel sticks for tens and marshmallows for ones. Cute edible activity to teach place value.
