Rounding chant:
4 or less; let it rest
5 or more; raise the score

Hands on:
Have a helium balloon with a string and have a student hold the string. Call out a number (ex. 8). The student has to count with their fingers until they get to eight. Start with the hand holding the balloon. Once the student gets to five they have to let go of the balloon; meaning that greater than five you have to go up to the next number. Call out another number (ex 4). The student starts to count with the hand holding the string. The student can still hold onto to the string so the balloon stays; therefore the number stays.

Good Luck!!!

We chant:

5 or above, give it a shove.
4 or below, no where to go.
