Spring Training Has Started! A Ballpark Estimate Freebie!

For those of us in New England that got buried with 8 more inches of snow, it is hard to believe but spring training has started! To celebrate and try and get myself out of the winter blahs, I am working on a ballpark estimate product. Those of you who do Everyday Math know the dreaded ballpark estimates (at least my 2nd graders dread them) and we need a lot of extra practice! It is not totally done yet but can share this freebie - a one page practice sheet you could use for in class, homework or even a quick assessment. Click on the images below to grab it from google docs. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you Deb! We had about a foot and a half of new snow this week but now it is raining!

  2. The dreaded part (for me!) is getting the students to remember that they have to estimate AND solve...and the two numbers should be fairly close. I have some students who will estimate using subtraction and then add the numbers and not notice a thing!

    Thanks for the extra practice!

    1. Suzy, I hear you! One cute thing I saw this year is a girl in my class who draws a big happy face if the estimate and the real answer are close together and a frowny face, sometimes even crying, if they are not close!

  3. Glad I don't have to deal with that. But we go down to Sarasota to see the Orioles each year.
    I would think your boys especially would like the theme. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for sharing via Freebie Friday! You're right, we always need extra practice on this too. A nice activity to put in my daily math folder, thank you! Hope the weather clears up for you soon :)
