This 17 slide PowerPoint presentation guides students through understanding decimals to tenths. It connects decimals to fractions, discusses place value, and provides graphic organizers and practice. I use it in my 3rd grade classroom over the course of 2 days while giving them time to practice.
Check out how I use the presentation along with some of the other activities I do with this unit at my blog http://tricksoftheteachingtrade.blogspot.com/2012/02/decimals-understanding-that-little-dot.html
