Teaching Comparing Numbers in First Grade

Hey, y'all! Are you gearing up for your comparing numbers unit? I love doing this unit during one of those crazy weeks of school because the kids usually catch on quickly even when their schedules are all wacky.

This unit is designed to be used as a centers-based unit, but can be used as whole group activities or for your fast finishers if you have a district curriculum you *have* to use.

We start of the week by introducing math symbols for comparing numbers and do a little guided practice.

Tuesday through Thursday, students go to a series of centers practicing these skills with games and task cards. Students use dice and cards to make numbers to compare, play War (directions included), and follow directions on task cards.

On Friday, we play Comparing Numbers Scoot. We check our work together afterwards. That way I can quickly see who needs more support in this area.

For more information about this unit, check it out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store here. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more great resources coming soon.

Stay sweet,
