Let's Compare Numbers

Teaching Children Concepts of Less Than, Greater Than, and Equivalent
Music With Mar.

This song is available on Music with Mar.'s "Math with Mar."

     Before listening to this song, the concept of greater than, less than and equivalent should be introduced. It is best to put a copy of the numbers used in this song on the board or on an overhead. Having the numbers to see visually while hearing them helps the brain to process.
      This song uses several math concepts and unless the children are familiar with them, parts of the song won’t make sense. Before using this song, review it and make sure the concepts used have been taught to the children. The concepts include single number comparison as well as fact families and tens. -- Mar. Harman

Let’s compare numbers,
if they’re bigger, smaller or the same.
Greater than for bigger,
less than for smaller, |
equivalent or equal.
Let’s play the game!
5 6. Five’s less than 6.
5 4. Five’s greater than 4.
5 5. They’re equivalent. Come on. Let’s do some more.

10 100. 10’s less than 100.
10 9. Ten’s greater than 9.
10 5 + 5. They’re equivalent. You see? You’re doing fine.

10 20. 10’s less than 20.
20 10. 20’s greater than 10.
3 + 2 2 + 3. They’re equivalent. Try to do another my friend.

30 3 tens. They’re equivalent.
9 30. 9’s less than 30.
30 9. 30’s greater than 9. Now you do one more for me.

5 tens 4 tens. 5 tens are greater than 4.
100 100. They’re equivalent.
6 7. 6 is less than 7.
We’re all smart enough to be president!
