Comparing numbers can be a challenge for young learners, and it is essential for preschool students to have a concrete understanding of numbers in order to master this skill. Therefore, Unit 4 is packed with plenty of hands-on ways to identify quantities that are more, less and equal. This unit expands practice of number quantity recognition to give preschool students a firm ability to compare numbers.

NO PREP Practice Pages- We all know that kids need a lot of practice to help master math concepts and to help them retain the knowledge. So I’ve made sure that each Preschool Math Unit will have a variety of fun NO PREP practice/worksheet pages for students to practice, practice, practice! These NO PREP practice pages allow students to master math concepts through cutting and pasting, coloring, dice games and more! Best of all, you can refer back to the Preschool Math Standards page and see which standard each page covers! Furthermore, you can connect these pages to a center that covers the SAME standard!
