The next series of size worksheets also comes from Kids Learning Station and will help your preschoolers learn about length - the ability to distinguish between long and short objects. A total of ten unique printables, students will be asked to observe and compare objects in order to:

  • Identify which objects in a group are long and which are short.
  • Identify the shortest and longest object within a group of objects.
  • Practice drawing an object that is shorter or longer than the object presented.
  • Match short and tall objects.

Worksheet Applications

Use the worksheets as designed or try one of these exciting activities:

baby block 1 After completing the worksheet activity, pair students up and invite them to cut the images from their printables. Encourage them to play a memory matching game by placing the cards face down on a flat surface, taking turns flipping over cards, and making matches based on object length.
baby block 2 Have students use the worksheet image cutouts to create patterns. Start of with a simple AB< />< /> pattern (e.g. long, short, long, short) and graduate to more complex patterning (e.g. short, short, long, etc.).
baby block 3 Use the worksheet images to create an interactive emergent reader booklet where your students can explore important vocabulary like: short, shorter than, shortest, long, longer than, longest, etc.
