This week we will tackle rounding and estimating in math. A few weeks ago one of the very talented teachers posted on her blog "A Rounding Fairy Tale." I apologize I do not remember which blog I found it on because there are so many of you out there sharing so many great things! But I did want to try and repost her fairy tale (bare with me, I am new at this) just in case someone missed the original posting. My next door neighbor used the fairy tale with her class and said it worked out perfectly.
A Rounding Fairy Tale
I will be sharing this with my students tomorrow and am quite hopeful that this method will help the students remember which place to look in when rounding and estimating. : )
