When learning how to compare numbers, we use the symbols < and >. When I was in school I struggled with this so much. Thankfully, we have learned that the alligator is the trick. Look at his mouth as it's open, and he always wants to eat the bigger number. 42 > 20. Fun right?
Today each group played a math game to help them grasp the concept a little better. On Friday, we will be performing our "Alligator Chomp" song from earlier this week for our Grandparent's Day breakfast. I will be sure to video it for all of you to see.
