Lesson Rounding numbers Student Maryam Alblooshi
unit/page teacher
MST Mister, Brian O’Neil School RAK Academy (PYP)

Class Grade 5 Date 15-10-2018

Overall aim and context of the lesson:

- Students will be able to round whole numbers to the nearest ten and hundred using a
number line as a tool.
- Students will be able to round whole numbers to the nearest thousand and ten
thousand by using the rounding cluster strategy.

Select (S):
Lesson: How we can round numbers to the nearest ten and hundred.
Stander: Not included.

Describe (D):
The lesson is for students to develop their understanding about rounding numbers. The lesson
take place for some students and some students not because they don’t understand the trick of
how to round numbers. In my lesson I was trying to achieve how students can round number to
nearest ten and hundred by using a way that match their level of understanding. Students did
variety of activities during the lesson. First, I asked them a questions about rounding. Then, they
did worksheet about how to round numbers by using the number line. After that, learners did a
small worksheet about how to round numbers by using the rounding cluster strategy. Then, they
practice in their book by solving rounding numbers questions. Finally, I putted in the board some
numbers and let students round them by using the small white board.
Analyze (A):
Some student’s response the way that I’m expected from them while others didn’t response
positively. I think that happen because students don’t know the meaning of the place value and
each number is representing a specific place value. I test student’s prior knowledge by putting
some numbers in the board and they should write the correct place value of that number. That
helped me to determine which students will be able to achieve the learning objectives and which
aren’t because if they know the place values they will able to round the number that is required in
the question. I engaged students by questioning and using the rounding cluster strategy.
Appraise (A):
Students have a good experience because all levels (high, medium and low learners) were trying
to answer the problems either by using the number line or by using the rounding cluster strategy.
According to the assessment part I release that my lesson take place for high and medium
students because they got all the answers correct.

Transform (T):
In the future, I think it’s better to separate the lesson into two lessons. For instance, the first lesson will be
about rounding the numbers to nearest ten and the second lesson will be rounding the numbers to nearest
hundred. As a result, the low level students will have more chances to practice each rounding more than
once. For my next lesson, I will use only one strategy for rounding because students get confuse between
each of them and they think that one technique is more easier than the other one.
