Today we will be comparing numbers.
Children use their partitioning knowledge to begin comparing numbers within 100. It is important for children to work with a range of equipment, both natural and man-made to make comparisons more visual.
Children use the language ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’
Which number has the most/fewest tens?
Which number has the most/fewest ones?
Why is it important to look at the tens before the ones?
If the number is greater/less which direction will we move on the number line or 100 square?
