Short Adjectives: Comparative and Superlative Forms

Short Adjectives: Comparative and Superlative Forms

I’ve just finished creating 180 cards which can be used to teach comparative and superlative forms of the so-called short adjectives. If your students need more practice or if you’re looking for a complete teaching resource to help them understand comparative and superlative forms of adjectives, these cards may be exactly what you need. All of the cards are very colourful and they all contain equally colourful images that will hopefully make using the cards more enjoyable. This time I’ve created four different types of cards. The first group consists of cards with multiple-choice sentences. There are 60 cards of this type in the pack. This next type of cards includes 60 cards too. These cards, however, contain sentences with gaps. The next cards are cards with pictures. Students’ task is to look at the cards, think for a second and compare the objects/people in the pictures. There are 30 cards of this type. The final type of cards are cards containing questions with comparatives and superlatives. These questions are followed by more detailed questions so that your students get to practise both comparative and superlative forms of short adjectives as well as speaking. The pack includes 30 cards of this kind. One more thing, the cards also teach the comparative and superlative forms of ‘good’ and ‘bad’. Additionally, the cards can be used to practise the expression as…as.

Blooms questioning dartboard

Blooms questioning dartboard

A great resource to utilise questioning in class. Add your own questions to the PowerPoint which has been linked to the colour coded slides. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on which part of the target they hit.. A simple but effective starter or plenary. Note: Two versions have been included. One where challenging questions appear more frequently and one where lower order questions appear more frequently.
