This is one my favorite things to teach!
The "gator" is used to have students come to the front of the room and act out which number the gator should "eat." It's the perfect vehicle to explain the math symbols to students.
-Gator symbols for greater than, less than and equal to
-Large number cards for students to hold up in the front of the classroom to "act out" story problems
-5 follow up worksheets, each increasing in difficulty:
1) Using the mini gators to show which is more
2) Comparing numbers to 12
3) Comparing numbers to 30
4) Comparing numbers larger than 50
5) UPDATE! I added a 4th worksheet to this set- student must read the number words and CVC words to then cut and paste the correct sign in the box. It's a challenge for some Kinders!
Thank you for looking! Enjoy!
