1. Think of a new way to sort the Beanie Babies.
2. Predict the outcome. Write a prediction statement.
"I predict the 4-legged animals will have the most."
3. Sort the Beanie Babies.
4. Write a comparison statement.
"There are nine more animals in the 4-legged group than there are in the 2-legged group." Following the lesson**, he identified and underlined the groups being compared in his sentence and circled the word "than" to show that a comparison was being made.
I keep one box of Teeny Beanie Babies, purchased at a garage sale, to use for sorting/graphing lessons.
Here he is sorting by color.
**The lessons come from Bridges, Grade 3, by The Math Learning Center. The original lessons use glyphs made by students.
