# Comparing & Ordering Decimals – Poster Set

Display different strategies for comparing and ordering decimals with this set of posters.

## Comparing Decimals & Ordering Decimals

Are your students in need of additional strategies to learn how to compare and order decimals properly? As we all know, one method does not fit all, so teaching different ways to solve problems is important.

Teach Starter has created a set of reference sheets you can use with your students in your place value unit when learning how to compare and order decimals. After teaching these methods to your students, consider allowing them to share which strategy is their favorite!

With this set of math posters, you can teach your students three different ways to tackle decimal comparison problems. These strategies include:

• Draw it out
• Use a number line

## How to Make the Most of Your Comparing and Ordering Decimals Poster Set

1. Print the posters and display them in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
3. Print the posters, slide them into a clear sleeve, and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center.

We’ve also developed bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that make your lessons stick!

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference.

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students.

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.

Fill your classroom with more posters and interactive displays!

Spend more time lesson-doing and less time lesson-planning when you grab these activities and teaching resources too!
