Quantity Word War

Quantity words can be so tricky!  Start with an introductory activity by grabbing a bag of Skittles or M&Ms and demonstrating:  none, a couple, some, a few, most, several, all.  Then move on to an introductory worksheet with pictured objects.  

Once they have that down, try this variation on the  classic card game “War.” This deck provides written and picture prompts to help students understand: none, nothing, single, couple, pair, few, some, several, many, lots of, most of, all, less than and more than. By playing “War” and making constant comparisons between words, your students will grasp the subtle difference in quantity words.
