Here's another song for you!
This one is fun,upbeat and addresses comparing numbers for math.
Greater than, less than and equal to are all words we use when we compare numbers.
I can remember drawing an alligator to help learn how to tell if one number was greater than another when I was in elementary school (just a few years ago).
This song states the meaning of each separate sign we use when comparing numbers. It would be great to have picture cards of each separate sign and show them to students as the song plays.
Another idea would be to have several cards made of each sign, and pass them out to your students. Play the song and as each sign is mentioned, those students have to hold up their cards (if they have that particular sign).
I think it's a very upbeat song to introduce greater than, less than, and equal to for a group of students! What do you think?
As always, thanks for stopping by! Be sure to come back tomorrow for another song!
