Kindergarteners Learn How to Compare Numbers

Adrian Kindergarten Students

As part of the State of Ohio’s learning standards for mathematics, Kindergarten students in Mrs. Catherine Mack’s classroom at Adrian Elementary have been working hard on learning how to compare numbers. During a recent lesson, students engaged in a learning activity with the objective of being able to identify a number that is less than another number using inequality symbols. Mrs. Mack began the lesson by completing several written examples on the whiteboard with input from students. As a fun way to help students correctly remember how to effectively use the inequality symbols, Mrs. Mack asked her students to pretend that the open end of each symbol was like the mouth of a crocodile and to point the ‘mouth’ towards the number that was greater in value. After completing several examples as a class, the students worked independently at their desks with guidance from Mrs. Mack. Keep up the great work, Kindergarten! Stay tuned for more examples of classroom learning taking place across the SEL Schools.
