Rounding with Jack and Jill

Ok y'all...here's another new center for the week for my kids - but I actually think I'm going to be doing this in my guided math groups. This skill is on the March math test and when I went to review it with my kids, you could have heard crickets in the room. lol. I guess my sub didn't get to this skill. Oh well, thanks to my Jack and Jill, I can usually teach it pretty quickly (for most...ha!) 

I've always taught rounding making a reference to Jack and Jill. I don't know why. It just hit me one day, but my kids got it, so I stuck with it! ha! The most difficult part of rounding for the students (that I have found) is knowing which two tens/hundreds the number being rounded is in between. I have done rounding with Jack and Jill for years, and it really does help the students to see the numbers better. This is even a skill they have been able to use on "the" test since they learn to draw them on their own.

I've always had lame generic, not cute "hills" for them to use during my rounding activities...but NOW I've got this C.U.T.E, CUTE clip art from Nikki to use!!! Didn't she just do a FABulous job!?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!  I'm so excited...so now I have more printing to do. But my UPS store is closed and I don't want to drive all the way to Office Depot in the rain (yay for rainy day!!), so I'm gonna see if my lame-o inkjet printer can handle the job. ha!


Included in this pack is:
Teacher number strip
Student black and white number strips
rounding hills
tens to round
hundreds that can be rounded to the hundreds or tens
recording sheets for the center
