Learning About Size with Stickers

We have been making great use of our farm animal stickers this week! This makes the fifth activity that I’ve shared on the blog that we have done with one big bag of stickers! It was a definitely a great purchase. Today, we’re learning about size with stickers. My preschooler had so much fun! I love that her vocabulary is expanding every day and that she is using it to show the things she is learning.

How to set it up:

Draw a line down the center of the paper.

Write “big” and “small” on each side of the line.

Place one sticker on each side of the line to show “big” or “small”

How to use:

Have your child stick the stickers on the paper according to their size.

Shiloh loved using the stickers! Peeling the backing off the stickers was a great way to work on her fine-motor skills. She figured out how to get her fingernail under the backing and peel it off herself.

I really like using these individual foam stickers instead of a page of stickers because it eliminates the frustration that kids have trying to get their fingernail under a flat sticker or in-between the cutting lines of a flat page of stickers. The foam stickers give kids something sturdy to hold onto while they peel off the backing.

Because of Shiloh’s special needs, we used this activity mostly for it’s language skill-building component.

She thought saying “big” and “small” was pretty cool. We also worked on saying animal names and their matching sounds.

I purposefully selected matching stickers for each side of the page so that we could show the difference between “big cat” and “little cat”, “big barn” and “little barn”, etc. That way Shiloh could understand that we weren’t saying “big” and “small” as names of the animals.

You could also introduce colors or adjectives such as; spotted, happy, fat, short, or tall.
