How To Use this Math Center:
After printing the center, cut out the Center title, Center directions and Activity Cards. There are a total of 6 cards. Laminate & place the 6 cards in a clasp envelope. (You may also choose not to laminate the cards and if so just make enough cards for all students to take one from the center envelope.) On the outside of the envelope place the Center Title on the front of the envelope and the Center Directions on the back of the envelope.
If you choose to laminate the cards, include dry erase markers for students.
When students use the center they:
1. Select a Card
2. Circle the number that is greater.
3. Underline the number that is less.
4. Write the correct symbol: > or <
The alligator analogy is great! An idea with this center that may help students remember which symbol means greater than. By having the students circle the number that is greatest and underline the number that is least you could tell the students to think of the number they circle as the cookie and the number they underline as the floor. Are they going to open wide for the cookie or the crumbs on the floor.
