Lovely - thanks! I took a screen shot of the main Simpsons page to use as a 'concept cartoon' before a lesson recapping on addition of decimals. Worked brilliantly as it covers the mistakes most commonly made when going back to a topic we haven't done for a few weeks. Thank you!
This is a great little activity (for 4th and 5th grade) and quick guide to adding and subtracting decimals from the tenths through the ten-thousandths place. I have had success with students referring to the quick guide at any time while solving the worksheets.
The worksheets include add-subtract problems, fill-in the missing decimal, and decimal word problems.
Teacher answer key included.
An easy to use, free online adaptive quiz from Mangahigh.
Adding and subtracting decimals including missing digits in the calculation. Use any number of decimal places in either number.

“Build an Army” is a fun, strategy game that can be used to consolidate understanding of key mathematical concepts. After students have played the game and described their strategy, there are opportunities for differentiation via various lines of inquiry and probing questions for the students to investigate. Full instructions are provided in the “General Rules” PowerPoint. To find more Build an Army activities, just visit: http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/buildanarmy.htm
