Hi,

My Mother in Law told me of a rounding rhyme that I could use with my demo lesson and I was wondering if anyone else had any memory rhymes that go along with rounding numbers that I could use to help them remember the concept! Thanks!

Is this what you're looking for?

5 or more? Raise the Score
4 or less? Let it Rest

Rounding Rap!

Hello! I just did some rounding with my grade 4s, and we used a rap that I had found on the internet--they LOVE it!

Circle your number
Look next door
5 or greater
Add one more

Numbers to the left
Stay the same
Numbers to the right
Zero's your name!

(Best when you add actions to help with the kinesthetic learning)

Cheers! :-)

Find your place
Look next door
Five or greater,
add 1 more
All digits in front stay the same,
All digits behind, zero's your name!

This works great when rounding to a particular place value. For example, if you are rounding 234 to the nearest ten, they underline the tens (3), draw an arrow to the 4, (it's not 5 or greater so they keep it), keep the 2 , you already have the three and the 4 becomes a 0. I have them do this as they say the rhyme!

Here's one:
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
So 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!

1, 2, 3, 4
Round down to the ten before
5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Round UP to the next ten on the numberline

We add actions (e.g holding fingers up for 1, 2, 3, 4, then punching down towards the floor; Wiggle a hand for five, and keep raising it higher as you count through 6, 7, 8, 9)

One of my students named Pricilla came up with a brilliant rhyme for rounding.

Five through nine
take a climb
Zero through four
stays on the floor


Smart girl, isn't she?
