For the digits four and less, Round that number ****down****, oh yes! ****Chorus (chant twice) ****Round ****up! **** (Five through nine!) Round ****down! **** (Four and less!)**

# Rounding Song (if you're happy and you know it) If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones. If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones. If the ones are zero through four, round it down to the tens before. If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones.

**If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones. If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones. If the ones are five through nine, round it up, and you’ll be fine. If you’re rounding to the tens place, check the ones.**

**Second verse...**** If you’re rounding to the hundreds place, check the tens**

**Third verse...**** If you’re rounding to the thousands place, check the hundreds**

**Rounding Rhyme****-****This tells you what to do, we use this to estimate!**

**Find your numbe****r ****(underline place value to round)**

**Go next door**** ****(circle lower place value- to right)**** **

**5 or greater, add one more **** **

**(underlined place gets one more)**

**4 or under, just ignore.**** **

**(underlined place stays the same)**

**Everything to the right is a 0. If you are rounding to 10, it has at least one 0 because ten has no ones, 100's have at least 00 because hundreds have no tens or ones.**
