## Rounding

Go over place values and what it means when a digit is in the ones, tens, or hundreds place. Helping a child feel confident with place values provides the foundation for other math skills, such as rounding numbers.
Students who are confident in their place values skills will find it easier to grasp the concept of rounding. For example, when rounding 1,459 to the nearest hundred, students should understand that the 4 in the hundreds place changes to 5 because the value of the tens digit is greater than or equal to 50.

## Connecting Nonfiction Reading to Realistic Fiction Writing

Young writers can help their stories feel more realistic by reading nonfiction texts and thinking about what they've learned. For example, have them read a short text about a person they find interesting and ask them about that person's personality traits.
Challenge students to make connections between an assigned nonfiction text and their own piece of realistic fiction writing. Being able to recognize parallels between real people from the reading and their own fictional characters will help them create realistic characters.
