Rounding Rollercoaster FREEBIE

Rounding can be a nightmare!!!!   Today was the 2nd day on this topic and I knew I needed to change up my teaching.  I compared rounding to a rollercoaster.  The students love to write about their summer trip to Six Flags or Rye Playland, so I figured I would capitalize on that.

Rounding is like a rollercoaster: If you do not make it all the way to the top of the hill, you will fall backwards; If you make it to the top of the hill, you will move forward. 

I made this chart to go along with my analogy. Visit my store for this freebie

  3. I'm so glad to have this poster. We use a rounding roller coaster also. I'm in Texas, and we also have a Six Flags near us (the original). We say, "Four or less, give it a rest. Five or above, give it a shove." Love the visual! Thanks!!
