This ready to go game set contains mats for sorting cards into greater than or less than and equal to. For easy differentiation this set also contains three decks of cards for sorting. Deck 1 contains Santa holding the numbers 1 – 9 with four cards of each number 1 – 9. Deck 2 contains the numbers 10 – 99 in a holiday candy theme. Deck 3 contains 60 ten frame cards with the numbers 1 – 20 represented by sets of candy in the ten frames or double ten frames.
To prepare: Print the number of mats you would like to use with your students. The game can be played by single students, or pairs of students. I suggest one set of mats for each group of students. The sets would include a greater than mat and an equal to mat or a less than mat and an equal to mat. Print the deck or decks of cards that you choose to use. I suggest printing on cardstock and laminating for durability. Cut the decks apart. Print the greater than or less than recording sheet if you choose to have students record their work. Recording is optional.
Single Student – The student draws two cards, places them correctly on the correct mat and records them using the recording sheet if desired.
A Pair of Students – Each student draws one card. The students compare the cards and place them correctly on the mats. The students record the cards using the recording sheet if desired. This game is aligned with Common Core Standards and Texas TEKS.
It works well with math stations, math centers, small group instruction, differentiated instruction and RTI.
