Take a few minutes to watch the video below that shows you a great game/activity you can quickly show your students and have them playing immediately.
Who has more? Who has less? works on comparing and ordering numbers. This game can be differentiated and played from kindergarten all the way through 5th grade.
If you have your students playing this game, please share or tag me in your photos. #kappelconsultingllc #makemathmeaningful #thinkfreeklyandflexibly

Box Cars & One-Eyed Jacks– I searched “shakers” on their website and here is what came up.
Here are a few other ways you can have kids using tools to practice comparing numbers.
Here you can see students using square inch tiles that I have written out the digits 0-9 on. Depending on how many digits you are working with, students have their tiles face down and grab that many. In this case, my students were comparing 5-digits numbers. They then had to create a number and compare. You can see the students pointing to the place value that they used to compare their numbers.
Here you can see students are using a recording sheet from my friends at Box Cars & One-Eyed Jacks to shake, record, and compare numbers.
