Boy howdy, does anyone else feel the burn of the new mathematics common core?? Next year will be much better, but this year has been tough! I will say, I'm impressed with some of the new strategies my students are developing, even though the curriculum is "tougher" and more rigorous.
Anyway, enough of that. We are in the middle of a unit on comparing and ordering numbers. This game is a game I created for students to use at centers to practice comparing numbers. Players take turns tossing a bean or chip onto the gameboard. They each write their numbers on the recording sheet and decide together which comparing symbol to write. Whoever has the greater number is the winner! Easy peasy. I have one board that has only 1 or 2 digit numbers, and then 1 board that goes into the hundreds. Enjoy either one! Click the links below the pictures for the boards, the recording sheet, and the directions.
