Subject: How do I teach rounding to fourth graders who just don't seem to get it?

Hello,

I am trying to teach rounding to a group of students and several of them still 
don't seem to get the concept. The strategy that seems to work the best is to 
have them round up if the number before is 5 or more, or round off if it is 4 
or less.  Do you know of any other strategies that other teachers have found 
successful?  Thanks for the help!
