April Showers Math


The month of April brings a lot of rain to northeast Ohio where the Simple Solutions and Summer Solutions office is located. These rainy days inspired our “April Showers” first-grade math activity. Students can follow along on the attached worksheet while you demonstrate Common Core Standard 1.NBT.3 on the SMART board. This standard compares two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits. The lesson is perfect for an introduction or review of comparing two two-digit numbers.
