It is not easy to teach a kindergartener. Kids at a young age are mischievous and often run from studying. But one cannot neglect early education since with time they’ll grow up and face the brunt of the competitive nature of the world that they live in. While they’ll need to acquire knowledge of science, mathematics, and language to name a few, they should also be familiar with common knowledge that shapes their perception and understanding of the world. Since young children learn quickly it is important to introduce them to these concepts early on in a manner that they find interesting. One such thing to learn is to compare different objects on the basis of their length.
While this may seem like an easy thing to understand it is important to know the difference between a short object and a tall object. It is useful in several walks of life such as while solving geometrical problems and so on.
While to us, it comes naturally to sort things based on their shape and size, young kids need to be told how to differentiate between tiny and huge, big and small, tall and short, thin and thick objects. Even if he understands the difference, he needs to know the different superlatives that he can use to define the differences in the objects.
This week, we bring to you this worksheet that can help you teach your kids the different superlatives. Once done with this worksheet, you can rest assured that your kid will know the necessary superlatives by heart and would be able to order things based on their length, height, and thickness when asked. Through the worksheet, kids would learn to order the objects using superlatives such as long, longer. longest, short, shorter. shortest, tall, taller, tallest, big, bigger, biggest, and thin, thinner, thinnest.
In the first of the five exercises of this length comparison worksheet, students would practice sorting things in order from 1 to 3 based on the length of the objects. The number 1 would be the long, 2 longer and three would be the longest of the three.
In the second exercise, students have to order the following images in sequence to show which one is long, longer, and longest.
In the third exercise, students have to order the following images in sequence to show which one is tall, taller, and the tallest.
Here in the fourth exercise, students have to order the following images in sequence to show which one is big, bigger, and biggest.
Another superlative that is important for kids to know is thin, thinner, and thinnest. In the fifth exercise, students have to order the following images in sequence to show which one is thin, thinner, and thinnest.
Exercises like these help children in the long run in ways one might not seem possible. Such exercises shape their perception of the world and give them a reference to compare things for good. Imagining ordering your favorite big mac at your nearest McDonald’s and receiving a normal burger, how’d you know you are being duped? If not for knowing these superlatives how’d you differentiate between a small, medium, or large pepperoni pizza?
