Free Y1 maths worksheets: Shorter and taller.

measureDeveloping and using the correct mathematical language for measurement of length is crucial and the following terms should be used as often as possible so that children can understand their meaning and use the terms themselves with accuracy. This should be done before standard units (cm, miles etc) are introduced.

For length:

long, short, tall, high, low, wide, narrow, deep, shallow, thick, thin, far, near, close.

For comparing length:

longer, shorter, taller, higher, lower, wider, narrower, deeper, shallower, thicker, thinner, nearer, closer

Take advantage of using these terms in everyday life when talking to your children at home, in the park, in the car etc. The following two worksheets are only a hint at what you can do with your own scrapbooks, cutting out or drawing objects which are taller, shorter etc.
