Comparatives Card Game <-- my kids are OBSESSED with this game

Practices:
"I wonder..."
"as _____ as _____"
comparatives- "taller, lovelier, stronger, faster, more powerful, and more fun"

The cards are easily editable (maybe put your own face in there and change the numbers as you please.)

Also, they're set up so you can put backs on them by just folding the paper in half.
(ps. Just added mini versions if you want to save paper. ^^ That's what I used for laminating purposes. Cutting is a little trickier though, so save time for that.)

Perfect for all levels.

(P.S. The rules ppt is AWESOME.  :P)

My lesson focuses on comparing things. Using the core dialogue from the book.

Warmer introduces different things used for measuring.
Dialogue is then introduced with some pictures for them to practice with.
Then they create their own dialogues and perform them to the class.
If time, there is a mini quiz at the end for them to have a go at whilst still using the core dialogue.

Hey guys,

Here is part 2 of lesson 2.

- Quick review of the comparatives from part 1
- Introduce superlatives
- Practice
- Superlatives Olympics (print the sheet twice, then scan and print so it appears on both sides and cut in half, so that you can save paper and have 2 sheets on one paper.

Edit: There is a mistake in the Superlatives list. I wrote it quickly and just realised.

It should obviously say 'good', 'better', 'best' NOT 'best', 'better', 'best'

Sorry for the mistake. Luckily it's an easy fix :)

My school is only covering lessons 1 and 2 for midterms so I've made an extra part for lesson 2.

This lesson focuses on Comparative Adjectives "as [adjective] as".

It's part of the lesson that my co-teacher covers in their class, so thought I might help out a bit.

Starts off with a review of last class (superlatives).
Introduces Comparative Adjectives.
Practice.
Create your own.
Performance.

Hope it can help someone out.

okay, so here is my Part 4 of lesson 2!

It's basically a review of the previous three parts but looks more at the "as[adjective] as" section.
I've also mentioned a few similes in there too.
There is a worksheet with 15 questions on to test their understanding.

It probably doesn't look like the most exciting lesson, but midterms are around the corner and I wanna make sure they understand this section, at least.

Have at it

My grade 3's aren't separated by level this year and so I created a Word doc to go over some of the vocabulary from the Listen and Speak sections and a fill in the black for Into The Conversation.

I'd suggest going over the vocab first even though it's the second page of the doc. I'm starting the lesson with the vocab side, doing the Listen and Speak section in the book, having them answer the first 2 questions of Into The Conversation (in the book) and then playing the dialogue again, as many times as needed for them to fill in the blanks correctly.

Not sure who was the original poster of this game but I modified it just a bit for this lesson. 

Good to practice superlatives and comparatives.

I took LockStock's midterm review and edited it slightly. My CTs wanted me to hit harder on comparatives since we spent an entire lesson on the superlative olypics posted above. I used this short PPT to review before jumping into Lesson 3.
