Hi Dr Nicki,
The greater and less than alligator posters and the alligator for the students to hold are so appropriate to teach comparing. I use your resources to pass on to teachers as soon as I get them. This time I made a packet of the posters, alligator poem, and a few other resources about comparing numbers and I gave it out at a summer school training for Kindergarten teachers. They are so excited to try something during the summer and maintain what the students have learned during the school year and prepare them for first grade.
Once again – great stuff. Thanks
