Spin & Compare

We are working on place value right now. We start off learning how to compare numbers by using this poem:

Mr. Gator likes to munch
on juicy numbers for his lunch.
Small numbers make his belly sore,
big numbers make him shout for more!
When Mr. Gator takes a bite,
large numbers feed his appetite.

I found this poem here:Poem

I made an interactive freebie to go along with comparing numbers. Click the link below to download!

Predicting and Inferring

I made a little freebie to give your students while you are working on making predictions and inferring. My students use this packet during their independent reading time. They will choose a book from their book bin and write a prediction they made and something they inferred while reading that book. We then get together and share their inferences and predictions at the end of Reader's Workshop.

Have a great day!
