Get cracking... comparing numbers

Today we worked on comparing numbers.  Each table of students got a basket full of plastic Easter eggs.  Inside the eggs were numbers.  They also each had a supply of connecting cubes.  The directions were to pull two eggs out of the basket, open one, write the number, build it with cubes, and repeat for the second egg.  Then, they compared the two numbers by looking at their cube towers.  I was amazed at how well the lesson went.  Kiddos who normally struggle with math skills were rocking it out!

Here's a quick freebie for you to get cracking with your kids!

Directions:  Write the first number in the first egg and the second number in the second egg.
Then, make your symbol in the circle between the eggs.

Apologies for the blurry pictures.  I didn't have either of my cameras or my iPod with me so I used my old school phone to snap a few pictures.

Only 2 more days until Spring Break!  WOOHOO!  How about you?  When's your break?

  2. Generally, I have seen some positive changes in my life. I improve incomprehensibly more vitality. I now run 27 miles a week easily, while before I attempted to do 10 miles for each week. I do 150 push ups without trouble contrasted with my typical 40 before. cash advance san-diego

  3. This can incorporate things like heading off to the films, additional advantages or whatever else excluded in your typical spending plan. You will then need to consider the sort of credit you will require. For the vast majority, there are no choices past the routine huge banks. You might need to consider the upsides of an online auto advance deliberately. payday loans chicago
