The ultimate math warmup focusing on decimals. These Decimal of the Day templates have been designed for you to engage students in learning all about how the number system works when working with numbers that include decimals.
These decimal of the day templates have been created so you can use them with any number with a decimal containing tenths, hundredths and thousandths. Each template includes a range of appropriate number sense skills to help develop competent and confident mathematicians in your classroom.
We have included a range of templates that cover different number skills expected according to the Australian ACARA outcomes and the Common Core Standards.
This document has been broken up into five sections: No whole numbers, numbers with tenths, numbers with tenths and hundredths, numbers with tenths, hundredths and thousandths and any decimal number. Each section has four different templates (including a half page template). Use the different worksheets to focus on particular skills, differentiate or provide variety for your students.
• 4 x decimals with no whole numbers
• 4 x decimals numbers that include tenths
• 4 x decimals numbers that include tenths & hundredths
• 4 x decimals numbers that include tenths, hundredths & thousandths
• 4 x any number with a decimal
• Links to ACARA (Australian Curriculum) and Common Core Standards
• Editable assessment checklist (see separate file)
How to use these templates:
There are so many ways you can use these templates in your classroom or homeschool. They are an ideal assessment, lesson warmup, math rotation task, morning work activity or revision lesson. They also provide an effortless way to differentiate for your students who are working with different sized numbers or working to master different number sense skills.
These templates are also an authentic opportunity to integrate student choice into your mathematics lessons, with students working on numbers of their choice.
Use Decimal of the Day as an ideal ‘grab and go’ lesson for those days that you may need it OR enlarge a copy to model each skill to the class or small group and then ask them to have a go independently using a different number.
This is a resource that you will repeatedly use throughout the year and can be adapted for different age groups. If you creatively use these resources, we would love to hear about it so we can share them with our Rainbow Sky community.
