Maths - Wed 20th


More and Less Posters (SB241) - SparkleBox

On Tuesday we learnt that when we compare objects or people we figure out if we have more, less or equal. To do this we need to make sure that we count the object we have.

Today we are learning that if we want to find how many more or how many less we have than a given number we need to count forwards or backwards.


Watch the video of Miss Pap below showing how we find or or less. She explains that we need to count forwards or backwards if we want to find more or less. She underlines the fact that we need to stop at the point where our sets are getting equal. Then we can find out how many more/less we have.


 After you have watched the video complete the following activities:

Make sure that when you do your activities you tell your adult what did you do. If you counted  forwards or backwards?

  • Scroll down the document and find out which set of objects has got more/less and how many more/less. Write the number on a piece of paper or pick up the correct number card or dice or piece of domino. Do not worry if you can not print the document out. Just point with your finger which group has got more/less, how many more/or less and pick up the correct number or write it down on a piece of paper. 
  • Go for a walk with your adults and  look for leaves or wooden sticks. Collect a few. Compare your sticks or leaves to someone else's sticks or leaves. Do you have more or less? How many more/less do you have? Make sure you make them equal first. Then, tell your adult if you are counting backwards or forwards in order to find how many more/less leaves/sticks do you have.
