Children always enjoy comparing one thing to another.  The Degrees of Comparison activity, does just this, and more.  A comparative adjective is the part of speech used to describe the positive noun word that will be compared to another, similar object, and then there is the best, the Superlative!

  • the positive adjective describes the initial noun
  • comparative adjectives are achieved by just adding -er to the adjective that describes the positive noun; with exceptions
  • superlative adjectives are achieved by normally adding -est to the adjective that descries the positive noun
  • however, if the positive adjective ends in ‘y’, then the y is changed to an ‘i’ and the ending becomes -ier, or -iest
  • there are, however, exceptions to the rule; and these must be learnt

The Child matches the word card to the relevant header card.
