Lucky Decimals

I L-O-V-E St. Patrick's Day. I've always loved the green, the gold, the rainbows, and the imagination that accompany this holiday each year. Sometimes I feel like my holiday themed madness can be too "baby" for my fourth graders, but I truly believe that even 10-year-olds need some four leaved clovers in their lives!

We are pounding out decimals right now and continuing to model both fractions and decimals in various ways. I threw this little gem together so that my students could show me what they know about modeling decimals wile embracing their inner "leprechaun-ness". My students had a blast showcasing their creativity, and I loved seeing each student's level of understanding of modeling decimals!

Here was my example that I showed the whole class. The activity sheet gives students explicit instructions and has a mini-checklist so that students are sure to model their chosen decimal all four ways.

Lovely student examples...

Ok, here's what you've been waiting for...hopefully! Click the image below to grab your Lucky Decimals template, free!

  1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
