## Reflection: Vertical Alignment Comparing Decimals Using a Numberline - Section 2: Grasping the Numberline and Comparing

In yesterday's Decimal War game, we got more comfortable with different decimals, thinking about where the numbers fit on our human number line. But today, students would have to practice what would be expected on a State exam, such as Smarter Balance, or P.A.R.C. This skill will also carry into science and other real life/work situations making them career and college ready as CCSS expects. So the two lessons taught in sequential order is a method for deepening their understanding. I love how CCSS allows me to design my lessons to allow a connecting thread that makes learning and their education so meaningful.
