Introduction

(2 minutes)
More or Less Butterflies
  • Gather the class together for a read-aloud.
  • Show the cover of the book and say, "This book is called Gavin the Gator: Greater Than and Less Than . Does anyone know what the words 'greater' and 'less' mean?"
  • Ask students to share their ideas and say, "Greater means there is more of something and less means there is a smaller amount."

Beginning

  • Review numbers 1–10 in student home language (L1).
  • Ask students to pair-share their ideas for greater/less in their home language (L1).

Intermediate

  • Have students turn and share with a partner what they think "greater"/"less" means.
