Students will compare two sets that are up to 20 items each. My students are using baggies filled with blue and red items. Students will sort items, and then fill tens frame appropriately. They will record by drawing circles to fill in in the tens frame to show how many there are of each. Write the number and circle the appropriate number. Then write which has more. It could be bears, unifix cubes, pattern blocks, beads, beans, m&m's, Skittles etc. The possibilities are endless!
This builds number sense and is simple enough for the kids to do independently.
Laminate or put in page protectors to play over and over again! :)
