This week we are continuing our ‘Place Value’ work and today and tomorrow we are going to be focusing on ‘Comparing Numbers’. Start with the ‘Quick Fire Number Comparison’ PowerPoint and shout out which is the smallest or greatest number. Now play this game to see what number the cat is thinking: www.education.com/game/comparing-numbers-quiz/
Open the ‘Comparing Numbers Day 1’ PowerPoint and work through the slides. Remember the greater/less than symbols we used last week!
Play this game to continue to practise using the language of greater than, less than and equals to: www.sheppardsoftware.com/mathgames/earlymath/BPGreatLessEqualWords2.htm
Activity: Go around the class to each have a turn of ‘guess what number I am thinking of’. Start with the adults to model and then move to the children. Use the sentence opener… I am thinking of a number it is… less than … but more …. Etc.
