Over the last four weeks, the Kindergarten students have been working on counting objects, making groups of objects, and addition. Yesterday, we started talking about greater than, less than, and equal to. Our theme for September is Apples so I used a line drawing of an apple tree and red pompoms (to represent apples) for this activity.
We started off by making two groups on the apple tree.
Then, students pointed to the group that was greater.
Next, the students pointed to the group that had less apples.
We talked about what equal means and I showed the students a few examples on the apple tree.
Finally, they counted the apples and found out how many apples there were all together.
