Digital and Printable Comparing Numbers Kindergarten Math Activities

If you think about it, children have an inherent knowledge of comparing numbers. “She has more than me! I don’t want to share! It’s my turn! When do I get to be the leader?” Preschool and kindergarten teachers hear those phrases on a daily basis. And these are the things that are IMPORTANT to young kids. Yes, it does matter to them whether they are at the front or the back of the line!

When we begin working on math skills, like comparing and ordering numbers, all we need to do is relate some of those “real-world problems” to our students to give them a little reference place to store this new information.

I love this Digital and Printable Comparing Numbers Math Activity for Kindergarten because it’s jam-packed with valuable learning in multiple forms! Your students can compare numbers and quantities both on-screen and/or as a printable worksheet!

Early Childhood Math Skills:

developing number sense in kindergarten

WHEN CHILDREN PRACTICE COUNTING, NUMBER RECOGNITION, AND COMPARING AND ORDERING NUMBERS, THEY ARE DEVELOPING NUMBER SENSE.

Number sense is essentially the ability to understand values that numbers represent and to be able to relate numbers to each other to easily add, subtract, and more.

Kindergarten math worksheets, as well as math centers and games, have an underlying focus on developing number sense.

Learning to count fluently, recognize numerals easily, and understand the value of each number in a two-digit number are great math skills that contribute to healthy number sense.

Early math lesson plans should contain multiple and various ways for students to practice basic number sense so that it becomes natural and easy for students.

This digital and printable comparing numbers worksheet gives young learners plenty of opportunities for that valuable practice! And it’s little-to-no prep for you, which is what I call a win-win situation!

How Can Kindergarteners Develop Number Sense?

ORDERING AND COMPARING NUMBERS NOW WILL HELP STUDENTS UNDERSTAND ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION LATER.

Help your students develop number sense all year long:

  • Oral counting games (forward, backward, skip counting)
  • Use number lines and hundreds charts
  • Hang anchor charts that illustrate numbers and quantities
  • Introduce math games as a whole group, then practice to mastery in small groups
  • Tell simple oral word problems that relate to real life, like lunch count or attendance
