Big Idea:Students get very confused when asked to use >,<, and = to compare numbers. This lesson will show students how to make the crocodile eat the biggest number and free their mind to compare numbers and not focus on which symbol is the correct one to use.
Big Idea:WOW! They are so tiny, but we need them to begin thinking abstractly. We need our little ones to understand a number line presents numerals in an increasing pattern and identify missing digits.
Big Idea:We want our little ones to learn multiple STRATEGIES to solve math problems. One strategy is to act out a problem. This lesson will provide students an opportunity to use cubes to act out problems.
Big Idea:First graders have so much vocabulary to learn in every subject area. When comparing numbers students should learn; more, fewer, greater than, less than, least, greatest, between, before and after.
Big Idea:We're not just comparing apples to oranges. My students are comparing numbers based on the meaning of the tens and ones place. They will use the symbols for greater than, less than, and equals to, to record their results.
