Step 1: Get a couple of colored balls in the class room.
Step 2: Now start taking out the balls from the bag one by one and put them n a basket.
When you are taking out the second ball from the bag, emphasis on the word , ‘more’
Will take out one more ball from the bag. keep asking questions to the children eg: “So how many balls are there in the basket now?” If we bring n one more ball from the bag then how many balls are there now?
Now take the second basket and put in one ball in this empty basket. ask kids how many balls are there n the second basket.
Now ask them which basket has more balls. 1st or the 2nd one.
Let them think and answer. once they answer correctly, ask them why does the 1st basket has more than the second one.
Step 3: Make pairs of the children in the classroom
Give one child 1 candy each. Now call one kid to stand in front and give 5 more candy to her. keep asking questions to the children eg: “So how many candy are there with the girl n front.? call second child and give him 1 more candy. Again ask the class how many does this boy have. Now finally ask So who has more candy among these two kids. Explain Why?”
Give worksheets of one more after this class. Next class introduce greater than sign.
