Using Comparatives

“I Know I Shouldn’t Compare, BUT…”

  • Collect objects, pictures, toys, etc.
  • Make sure the items that you collect vary in weight, size, etc.
  • Keep the objects in three’s, so you can compare (e.g., small, smaller, smallest; big, bigger, biggest; heavy, heavier, heaviest).
  • Describe the objects using comparatives (e.g., “This is a small ball, this ball is smaller than that one, and this is the smallest ball of all”).
  • Ask your child questions such as, “Which one is smaller? Which one is bigger?  Which one is faster?” 
  • Talk to your child throughout the day using comparative terms to describe what you see and experience.
