Greater Than or Less Than

Grade 1 Common Core

Introduce " Greater than, Less than or Equal to"

Brief description of lesson: Students will be introduced to greater than, less than or equal to. First the Students will listen to a “Hungry alligator poem”. Teacher will ask students “what number does the alligator like to eat? Teacher will ask other students to agree or disagree with the chosen student’s response, using thumbs up or down. Teacher will reinforce the concept by saying” the alligator will always eat the greater number.

Next the students will participate in a Smart Exchange lesson on the Smart board base on Greater than or less than concept. The teacher will read each slide to the students and have the students participate in answering the greater than, less than or equal to problems. Teacher will ask other students to agree or disagree using the thumbs up or down process.

After the Smart board lesson the students will independently complete an exit ticket on their IPad. The teacher will provide the students with an exit ticket to check for each students understanding of whole group lesson.

I choose the Smart exchange lesson for the students to engage in an interactive hands on lesson. I feel using Smart exchange lessons on the Smartboard allows the students to activity use technology to bring the lesson to a visual and interactive learning. The exit tickets on the IPad provides the teacher with the students understanding of the lesson. This help the teacher to obtain real time assessment of each students understanding of the lesson taught. This helps to provide information to the teacher if the content need to be retaught.

Base Ten Blocks

Greater than, Less than or Equal to using base ten blocks

Brief description of lesson: Students will continue reviewing yesterday’s lesson on greater than, less than or equal to. The students will learn to determine the value of place value blocks, using greater than, less than or equal to. The teacher will write two digits on the smartboard and have selected students come up and write a greater than, less than or equal sign in-between the two numbers.

Next the students will participate in a Smart Exchange lesson on the Smart board base on Greater than or less than concept using base ten blocks. The teacher will read each slide to the students and have the students participate in answering the greater than, less than or equal to problems. The teacher will ask other students to agree or disagree using the thumbs up or down process.

After completing the smart exchange lesson the students will watch a YouTube video. The video will be on a review of the base ten blocks.

After the Smart board lesson the students will independently complete an exit ticket on their IPad. The teacher will provide the students with an exit ticket to check for each students understanding of whole group lesson.

I chose the Smart exchange lesson for the students to engage in an interactive hands on lesson. I

feel using Smart exchange lessons on the Smartboard allows the students to actively use technology to bring the lesson to a visual and interactive learning. In this lesson I also included a YouTube video to catch the students attention and show a little more on using place value and greater than and less than.
