Use these 32 multiple choice task cards to help your students gain fluency in selecting the correct comparative or superlative modifier. The first three cards on every page focus on adjectives, while every fourth card is focused on adverbs. So, if you just want to focus on one skill or the other, you can use just those cards and have students fill out the appropriate column(s) on the answer sheet. There are more adjective cards than adverb cards because comparative and superlative adjectives are more common in everyday text and speech.
A student answer sheet for students to record their answers is included along with an answer key for self-checking. There is also a Challenge Card that can be used with any other card. It asks students to use the word selected in a new sentence. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
