PK.N.3.1 Compare two sets of 1-5 objects using comparative language such as same, more, or fewer.

In a Nutshell

Students entering Pre-Kindergarten are developing the concept of quantity. By the end of the year, students should be able to look at two separate groups of objects and use mathematical vocabulary to describe their relationship.

Student Actions

Teacher Actions

  • Communicate mathematically by using the appropriate math vocabulary when discussing quantities.
  • Make generalizations as they compare sets of different quantities.
  • Connect mathematical representations by modeling and using appropriate math vocabulary when discussing quantities.
  • Promote reasoning by providing students with tasks and opportunities to compare sets of different quantities.

Key Understandings


  • More means bigger. 
  • Fewer means smaller.
  • Same means they are equal.
  • Confusing the definitions of quantity specific vocabulary.
  • When asked to compare, gives the number counted instead of using the appropriate vocabulary.
