Mr. Alligator Can Chomp
Learning the Concept of Greater Than / Less Than
This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Movin' 2 Math.
Activity suggestions from Jack Hartmann:
Place both hands and arms out like the big jaws of an alligator and get ready to chomp toward the number that is greater. We chose an alligator because the open jaws look like a greater than / less than symbol. (> and <).
Make number cards with the numbers of the song. Hold them up as we sing and children chomp their arms and hands at the number that is greater.
Try a fun drawing activity -- give the children a piece of drawing paper with the ">" already on the paper. Draw an alligator with the symbol as its jaws. On the open version of this song (included with the CD), make up new number combinations and chomp!
Mr. Alligator can chomp
He can swim and he can stomp
He's a real smart alligator
He chomps at numbers that are greater...
