When teaching decimals conversions: “W” or the “butt cheek” method?


I personally like the butt cheek method. Nevertheless, a good way to pratice this is to actually cutout a upper case W or a Butt Cheek and have the students place them on the decomals to percentage problems

Hello! Found your blog by "googling" some hands on math activities. I am a 5th grade math teacher in Virginia and I TOTALLY TEACH THE BUTT CHEEK method! While trying to figure out a way to easily explain it to my students, I noticed the two "hops" looked like a butt. I've been teaching it like that for years! So funny to see this! :) Thanks for providing so many great ideas! :)
