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.

### Center 2: Count and Compare Acorns

Draw two cards, count the number of acorns and compare the numbers.

### Center 3: Count and Compare Apples

Draw two cards, count the number of apples and compare the numbers.

### Center 4: Count and Compare Pumpkin Seeds

Draw two cards, count the number of pumpkin seeds and compare the numbers.

### Center 5: Count and Compare Balloons

Draw two cards, count the number of Balloons and compare the numbers.

### Center 6: Counting Chocolate Chips

Count the chocolate chips on each cookie and compare.

### Center 7: Counting the Sprinkles

Count the sprinkles on each donut and compare.

### Center 8: Counting the Candies

Count the candies in each jar and compare.

### Center 9: Counting the Pepperoni

Count the pepperoni on each pizza and compare.

### 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

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the rainbow to the unicorn. The person who feeds all of their rainbows to the unicorn wins! If the rainbows have the same number, both players feed the unicorn!

### Center 19: Feed the Frog

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the fly to the frog. The person who feeds all of their flies to the frog wins! If the flies have the same number, both players feed the frog!

### Center 20: Feed the Bunny

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the carrot to the bunny. The person who feeds all of their carrots to the bunny wins! If the carrots have the same number, both players feed the bunny!

### Center 21: Chomp…Chomp…Math

Two players each turn a card. The player with the card that has the greater number keeps both cards. The player with the most cards wins!

### Center 22: Count and Clip

Count the objects in the box. If the number matches the rule at the top of the strip, clip a clothes pin on the box. Each strip has 3 matching boxes.

## 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.

You can purchase Unit 4 individually **HERE** or

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

Great resources!

This looks like a really fun package. I especially like the Feed Me games 🙂

Caty says

I need you to make something similar for 2nd and 3rd grade! We love your stuff in our house. Your no prep packets are amazing. I hope you make something similar for 2nd and 3rd.

I purchased the Kindergarten Comparing Numbers Unit 4 package. I really enjoy the different games and the fun clipart to keep the children engaged and learning.

For Chomp…Chomp…Math it is played like the card game “War.” I don’t understand how to use the alligator mouths and equal sign. Do the children just place them between the cards before they decide which is greater?

Thanks

Lisa

Hi Lisa!

I’m glad that your students are having fun with the math centers! That makes my heart happy!

For the Chomp…Chomp…Math game, the players decide together which symbol to use and place it in between the cards. The reason why I included the mat and symbol cards is because it is important for students to become familiar and fluent with the greater than, less than and equal to symbols when comparing numbers. Those are going to be symbols they see with future math lessons, so it’s better that they practice those also than simply deciding and stating the greater number.

I hope that makes sense!

Kindly,

Annie
