Math Vocabulary Learning math vocabulary is an important part of kindergarten math.  Talk about equal, same, and different. “What’s different about these two flowers?”  Play “Simon Says” to practice positions. “Simon Says put the book behind your back.“ (under your chin, over your head...)  Look for opportunities to discuss relative terms such as more, less, bigger, smaller, lighter, heavier, taller, shorter, longer, etc. “Which of these glasses has more juice?”
