more and less
Number sequences. Counting from any number. More and less. Need: tactile (here, I used small rocks); Deck of number cards; 1 more, 1 less cards, whiteboard. Set up the shown. Review "more" and "less" using the tactiles. Review "1 more" and "1 less". Then segue into the activity: Deal a card. Have your tutee copy the number in the middle and think through one more and one less than that number. Your tutee may use the tactiles if necessary.
Use teddy bear counters to teach number comparison! Laminate the number comparison work mat without signs (see previous pin). Arrange bears in 3 sets of 2 groups each: one equal set, one less than set, and one greater than set. Give your child a dry-erase marker and have her label each set with the correct sign. To add an element of surprise, place cups over the piles. Tell child that the bears are sleeping in their caves; we are going to wake them up to see which neighbor family has more cubs!
Greater Than or Less Than Flipstrips 1-The Greater Than/Less Than Flipstrips 1 are a math activity. In this activity students complete each flipstrip with a "greater than," "less than," or "equal" sign when comparing two numbers. This activity works well in both independent work stations and math centers.
