Springtime animals are ready to help your students practice their basic comparing skills! These pages are perfect for working on “bigger, smaller, biggest, and smallest” for both receptive and expressive tasks.
The first page has three sets of three different sized animals. For a receptive task, have the student point to the animal that you indicate (e.g., the biggest or the smallest). You can also cover up one of the pictures and work on “bigger and smaller”. For expressive practice, have the student say which one you are pointing to.
The second page is a great way to check your students’ expressive use of the comparatives and superlatives “bigger, smaller, biggest, and smallest”.
Each half of the page has 5 sentences to complete using these words. You can use the halves as pre- and post-tests or as worksheets for the students to complete. If the students are too young to read the sentences or write in the answers, you can write in their verbal answers and keep the page for your records.
