Hi, It's now several years later since I wrote this initial blog. I've improved on the downloadable booklet. I have no idea whether Common Core Math is even a thing in pandemic kindergarten, but the book I've downloaded is great for the concepts of 'large' and 'small'. I love all of you kids and therapists, and wish you well during this pandemic. Hugs! Ruth

Last week, I posted about Common Core Math Vocabulary. Two of the words on the kindergarten list were 'larger' and 'smaller'---so I decided to modify a Tarheel Reader book, going beyond 'big' and 'little'. The actual kindergarten CC goals related to these words are:
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'm sure you would extend your activities beyond the book and compare lots of things in the room and around the school or home (wherever you're working with the children). The book I'm offering is meant to support this and is free and available on the link below (along with icons if you need them).
Obviously, this is a simple book, in simple language. Look for more vocabulary books based on Common Core Math Vocabulary in the near future!

Only 14 school days left!!!! I'll be working in the ESY program, so look for my blogs about speech stuff all summer! Who needs vacation, anyway?
