Let's continue where we left off before I took a short break. We were learning about adjectives...more specifically, the three degrees of adjectives.
- Positive degree: used to express a quality without comparing
- Comparative degree (-er): used to express a higher or lower degree of change (between two things)
- Superlative degree (-est): used to express the highest or lowest level of change (between three or more things)
Using the pictures as a guide, read the three sentences in each box. Ask your child to choose the correct endings (-er or -est) that are missing in the second and third sentences. Reinforce the concept that -er is when you are comparing two things and -est is used when you are comparing three or more things. Write the correct endings on the provided lines.
Note: Point out that sometimes you have to double the last letter of the word before adding the -er and -est (like the word hot on the activity sheet.) Here are some common words that also fit into this category: big, wet, mad, and sad.
