Rounding anchor charts are everywhere – so I’m going to add my favorite rounding skills anchor chart to the heaping pile! My students reference it a lot and I hear them reading and repeating it at random times during the day – not all bad, either!
|Rounding Anchor Chart|
If you feel comfortable, it’s a great mini-lesson and loads of fun to make the anchor chart with your students. I usually sketch out an outline or idea of how I’ll set up my anchor chart ahead of time (I’m not the most creative or artistic!!), and that makes me feel better about trying to design the anchor chart while students are watching. Sometimes, I’ll have the main ideas or words written in, and I’ll add details and “flair” (also known as doodles!) while students are talking.
I leave my anchor charts up for the remainder of the unit, which allows students to reference it whenever they need to. My students and I practice the words and break down the meaning together so that students truly understand what they’re reciting. It’s easy to forget that there are a lot of steps to rounding, and this anchor chart helps students remember.
I’ve been reviewing some place value and rounding skills lessons again during our weekly review time. During that time, I pull out some lessons and activities that we worked on earlier this year. Some of the pages that I pulled out were from my Place Value and Rounding Pack.
Please consider following my Place Value and Rounding Pinterest Board – check it out!I enjoy pulling out some review pages and have learned that they make planning for a substitute teacher easy breezy!
