**My best seller! Updated Oct 2016** How many more and fewer. Those pesky questions! Included are 125 pages: 50 worksheets using graphics with scaffolded practice using pictures for finding "how many more" and "how many fewer" than a number. Perfect for some 1st, definitely second and third grades.
Included are 48 word problems to practice "how many more" and "how many fewer" than a number in journal strips as well as in worksheet form (4 problems per sheet).
Also included - Student Stations: Students make their own models using teddy bears or other small objects demonstrating how many more/fewer. They will walk around the room to analyze & solve each other's work.
These pages are simply for practicing that one tricky skill before attempting confusing word problems and/or throwing tons of data into a graph or word problem.
This packet contains different ways to practice “how many more/fewer” for the various needs in a typical classroom.
In part one you will find pages that show two or three rows and sets of animals to be compared.
The first few pages show pictures organized in neat rows, as would be shown in a picture graph. I show kids how to connect the two objects we are comparing on a graph, even if they are not one right above the other.
The last few pages of set one show mixed up sets of 2 – 3 animals. The kids have to count and list the number of animals to know how many there are of each before answering “how many more” or “how many fewer” questions.
The second group of pages is a modified version of part one and is a little more challenging in that the pictures are worth more than 1 (vote) each. The graph key shows that each picture is worth more than one count. Some keys have a blank and you can choose your own value (or white out mine and make your own). I’ve also left some blanks in some of the questions where the kids will have to identify which set has more/fewer before they solve and answer.
The next group of pages includes multi-step problems. For example, the question might be “How many more chicks are there than dogs and cats combined?” Kids must add dogs and cats first and then subtract the sum from the number of chicks.
