Kindergarten Math Made Fun Unit 4 is here, and it’s all about Comparing Numbers 1-10!
Teaching students about the relationships between numbers can be so fun! After students have mastered understanding quantities and counting in order, you can start introducing the terms “greater than,” “less than” and “equal to.” I have created some fun, hands-on ways to get your kindergarten students excited to learn these concepts!

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE MATH CENTERS FOR UNIT 4 IN ACTION…
There are 22 Hands-On Centers in Unit 4! It’s HUGE! I’m excited to show you each center and how they work.
Center 1: Compare and Clip
First, count each group of objects. Then decide if the first group is greater than, less than or equal to the second group. Use a clothespin to show the answer.

Draw two cards, count the number of acorns and compare the numbers.
Center 3: Count and Compare Apples

Center 10: Roll and Compare
Two players take turns rolling a die. The player who rolls picks a number in the row that matches the die and decides if the first number is greater than, less than or equal to the second. The player who gets the most correct wins! Laminate the page, use 2 different dry erase makers for a quick game that can be played again and again! This center included two different game boards.
Center 11: Spin, Build and Compare
Spin both spinners. Build the numbers on the recording sheet and circle the number that is greater. There are a total of 5 different spinner cards in this center.
Center 12: Dominos Compare and Clip
Count the dots on each side of a domino. Use a clothespin to show greater than, less than or equal to.
Center 13: Flip, Count and Compare
Two players each flip a card and place it on the square. The person who has the greater number wins that round and gets to color a cube on a rod. The player who fills the rods first wins the game.
Center 14: True or False?
Read the sentence and decide if it is true or false.
Center 15: Compare and Sort
Flip a card and decide if the first number is greater than, less than or equal to the second number.
Center 16: Compare and Match
Draw a card, compare the towers and match the card with the correct sentence.
Feed Me Games for Centers 17-20
The Feed Me Games are played with 2 or more players. This allows students to count and compare items such as ten frames, numbers, dice, objects and fingers. The person with the greater number feeds the animal. The first person to get rid of all their cards, wins the game!
Center 17: Feed the Dog
Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the bone to the dog. The person who feeds all of their bones to the dog wins! If the bones have the same number, both players feed the dog!
Center 18: Feed the Unicorn

There are 40 NO PREP Practice Pages included in Unit 4
Here are some of the pages in action…
How do I organize the Units?
I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.
I store the NO PREP Practice pages in a 1-inch binder. I place each practice page in a sheet protector. This allows you to easily grab and copy the pages that you need or have students use a dry erase marker for a quick wipe and write activity.

I hope that these units help to make your math time FUN, engaging and successful!
