Taller and Shorter--printable book; Common Core Math Vocabulary

In North Carolina, it's a bad day for education.  Read for yourself  by clicking the link.

I'm thinking that the chances of anyone getting instructional supply money next year are slim to none, so I've made another free book to go along with kindergarten Common Core math vocabulary. Click here for another CC math link. The objectives are the same as my previous book, Larger and Smaller. All you need is a printer and paper. I made this book on Tarheel Reader, then uploaded it to Google Drive where I could embellish it.

Common Core Objectives
1. Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
2.  Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

I've included icons at the end for you to use with the kids if they need them.  You'll probably also need to spend some time teaching tall and short with concrete objects.  Once the child has been introduced to the concepts, then use this book to reinforce your teaching.
