Faster, slower, louder, quieter…

These girls have a great collection of videos online. Just like the Baby Brain Play videos, these are excellent chants / songs to do with small children. They have repetitive action that engages all of the child. The chants are easy to learn so parents can learn them too and repeat at home.

Once we’ve learned our Opposites, we then can move to these comparative words. Basically adding (-er) to the ending of adjectives we already know:

  • bigger
  • smaller
  • faster
  • slower
  • louder
  • quieter

I use these throughout the lesson. No matter what we are doing, the student can repeat a word back to me, and then I say, Say it LOUDER! When we are building something, I say Build it BIGGER!

It’s very easy then to show using just my hands and voice:

  • taller
  • shorter
  • higher
  • lower
  • happier
  • sadder

And we can add sticks (or in my case, pencils) for more hands-on fun.
