Greater Than Less Than

This week we talked about greater than less than. I found this free flipchart on TpT from the wonderful Lori over at Little Priorities. Check out her blog and TpT store if you haven’t already. I tweaked the flip chart for my students and created a flipchart I could use for math stations. Well, Lori was so kind and let me use her crocodile symbol in the flipchart I’m posting for you on TpT for free . Here’s a peek at how we used it this week.

On this slide pairs of students came up and pressed the random number generator to create two two-digit numbers. Thanks to Anna over at Crazy for First Grade for hipping me to the random number generator on my Promethean Board.

Each student wrote their number in the box then discussed together which symbol to pull down after they compared the numbers. image

On this set of slides individual students came up, read both numbers and decided which symbol to pull down.

The student then completed an activity sheet. They pulled two numbers from a bag and had to compare them. The first day we compared for greater than. The students wrote their numbers and glued their symbol for greater than. Then they completed the sentence for their numbers.

The next day we compared for less than.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! I’d love some feedback!

  3. Oh I wish I could use the flip charts. Our school still thinks a document camera is super high-tech. I love the sheets you have. Those will be super for practice.

  4. Aww man! I have a Smartboard...but the Promethean board seems to be a lot more user friendly!

    We just introduced greater than, less than, and equal to a week or two ago. I love having practice shees to reinforce what we have learned!

    Thanks!
