Prekindergarten Mathematics Module 4, Topic A

In Topic A, students use correct vocabulary, tall or short, to describe length. Because Pre-Kindergarten students entering school might describe most objects as big or small, Lesson 1 helps students refine their descriptors using examples of tall things (buildings, trees, flagpole) and short things (scissors, a used crayon or pencil, a puppet).  Children practice using their new vocabulary as they build tall and short buildings with blocks and then move to the pictorial, using strips of paper to create a city with tall and short buildings.
