Use These to Help Students Formulate Understanding of Decimals
What does a day out of school equal? A finished product for Teachers Pay Teachers! Here is a little something I have been working on that I was able to complete today since we got a surprising day off from work due to the icy weather.
Because decimals seem abstract to students–especially when the zeros fall off the ends, I created these decimal pocket chart number cards. The zeros are grayed out so that students begin to make the connection that the zeros don’t necessarily have to be on the end of a decimal number. The number cards are great for 4th graders just beginning to make the connection that the zeros have no value.
The cards come in 3 different color variations–red backgrounds with white numbers…

and white backgrounds with black numbers. The black numbers offer a host of variations if printed on colored card stock. The pattern possibilities using colored card stock are endless.
The numbers also come in two different variations–without the whole number 1 and with the whole number 1. This will aid in giving students the understanding that decimal numbers may or may not have whole numbers in front of them.
