Reading Strategies are listed below that students can use to improve their reading comprehension:
--Who,What, When, Where,Why, How Book Mark to track events in each chapter of their book
--Quick Sketches for the beginning, middle, ending of the book
--Character, setting, plot report/analysis of their book
--Make an audio recording/video that summarizes each chapter of their book and then playing back to themselves after they have finished the book.
--Look for on-line Study Guide on their book
--Get in a book club with friends/family
I have recommended that students do book clubs and read the same books together so they can then quiz one another and I have asked students who have already read a book to provide a book review that would include writing a few review questions for the next student who reads the book.

Find the place value,
Circle that digit,
Then Move to the right and underline it!

But 5-9, adding ONE is the game.
Now, flex your muscles just like hero, digits to the RIGHT change to zero.
All the other numbers STAY THE SAME,
Yo, yo, you’re a winner in the rounding game!
