For a fun lesson in rounding, while at the grocery store, point to various price tags and have your Schooler round the price to the nearest dollar or even the nearest ten cent. For added practice, give them a budget before entering the store and have them use their rounding skills to stay within that budget. Remember there is learning all around you!
Need resources for rounding? Numbers Elementary: Rounding introduces children to the students of Numbers Elementary School and illustrates a lesson learned when a new student, Five, joins the class and Farmer’s Market Rounding should be easy enough even for preschoolers to grasp hold of the concept at hand. Both can be found on Amazon.com.
