New Product {Comparing Numbers}

Wow, two posts in one day!  These snow days have done wonders on getting things done on my to do list.  I just finished my latest activity packet and you are going to love it!  It is common core based and focuses on comparing numbers using symbols.  It's called "Fill Your Cup!"

Here's how it works.  Students can play with a partner or small group.  Each kiddo needs a cup work mat.  Players will draw a number card and compare their number to the others.  Whoever has the greatest or least number {depending on the version}in the group gets to place that card on their work mat, thus filling their cup.  Play continues until all the cards have been used.  Whoever "filled their cup" with the most number of cards is the winner. 

I included number cards 1-120, but you do not have to have students play with all cards.  Depending on their level choose what cards to work on.  Maybe if you teach kindergarten, only have students use number cards 1-20!  If students are more advanced, they can play with numbers 1-50.  The possibilities are endless, just choose what works best for your kiddos.  If you need to check for student understanding, I included a few different versions of recording sheets.  I included one of these as a FREEBIE down below. 

O.K. enough talking, here are a few snippets of what is included.  I made two versions, one version uses more colored ink, while the other is more ink friendly.  Click on any of the pictures to take you to my TpT store and check it out.

Here's your freebie! Just click on either picture to download!

And if your still with me, I would love to give this packet away to somebody!  All you have to do is leave me a comment about ANYTHING and FOLLOW MY BLOG!
