Thursday 24.9.20 Compare numbers
Start today’s lesson with LOTS of counting forwards and backwards using the splat square. Sing the counting song. Stop where you don’t know the number which comes next. Can you reach 35 today? Challenge: count backwards from 30 to 10.
Go through the learning Powerpoint (or video lesson), stop where prompted and direct your child to undertake tasks on their worksheet. Choose the difficulty level worksheet for your child. Use the number track to locate numbers. Use the mathematical language of ‘greater than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’. When comparing numbers, use the =, >, < cards and 0-10 number cards and use the mathematical language/stem sentences, for example: 5 is greater than 4; 5> 4 . If your child is finding using number difficult, then continue to use groups of objects and the symbols, as yesterday. If your child is secure with comparing number to 10, he/she can practise with numbers to 20.
