Completing groups of 0-10 (more than, fewer than)

Tips on how to use this exercise at home and at school.

Completing groups of 0-10 (more than, fewer than)

Early math concepts

In the previous exercise, the child recognized situations where there are more than or less than pictures/objects. Now they will create these groups of pictures/objects according to the instructions. In this way, they will demonstrate an understanding of the situation when making comparisons. If there is less than 1 in one group of objects, there will be more than 1 in the other group. In this exercise, they work with several objects up to 10.

Why is this exercise important?
When comparing quantities, the child uses his/her experience and knowledge with the concepts of more/less and now we add the concept of more o/less o. This correlation is the basis for later understanding the relationships between numbers (the number 7 is 2 more than 5 and conversely the number 5 is 2 less than 7).

Who is the exercise suitable for?
In general, it belongs in preschool or early school games. In addition to number concepts, and reasoning assumptions, it also develops language skills at the same time.

Methodological recommendations
We can only proceed to the exercise when we are sure that the child understands the relationships more/less. 
The child may initially have difficulty in finding out in which frame there should be which number of pictures. In this case, we allow him/her to listen to the instruction again.

If still unable, offer the child to make the same number of pictures in both groups and then listen to the instruction again.

Invite the child to think aloud. This will help to improve comprehension as well as relieve working memory.

Splitting the candy into two piles. Divide them so that mom has 1 less candy than you. Who has more candy in the pile? You or me? How much?

You can also practice the higher and lower relationship on the stairs (Who is 1 step higher than you? Who stands lower than you by 2 steps? Now stand so that you are 1 step lower than me. What do you have to do?)

Build a building with blocks taller or lower than mine. Now adjust the buildings so that they're the same height. What do you have to do?
