Rounding Rhyme
Old 03-14-2007, 06:04 PM
Clip to ScrapBook #2

I use this rhyme. Maybe it will help your kids.

Find that place value, circle that digit.
Number to the right, underline, get it.
Four and under, circle stays the same.
Five and up, add one is the game.
Now flex your muscles like a hero,
Digits to the right turn to zero.
All other digits stay the same,
Wow, you're a winner in the rounding game.
