Kids Learning Station provides a brilliant set of worksheets to help your students learn the concepts of tall and short - an important skill your preschoolers should have before heading to kindergarten. Six unique printables in all, students will practice observing and comparing objects in order to:
- Identify the shortest and tallest object in a group of objects.
- Practice drawing an object that is shorter or taller than the object presented.
- Match short and tall objects.
Use the worksheets as designed or try one of these exciting activities:
||Ordering. Have students cut out the objects on their worksheets creating individual object cards. Invite them to practice ordering the cards from shortest to tallest and tallest to shortest.
||Sorting. At the conclusion of the lesson, have students cut each of their worksheets apart, creating individual object cards. Invite students to practice sorting the cards by object size (shortest, short, tall, tallest, etc.).
||As a twist, create an interactive emergent reader for your students to make. You'll need a book template (similar to the example below) for students to glue the individual object cards to.
Example Interactive Emergent Reader
You might also consider including pages with slightly different wording. For example:
As students pair objects in their emergent reader, they'll practice important vocabulary like short, shorter, shorter than, tall, taller, taller than, etc.
