Ultimate cuteness in a Powerpoint? Yep.
Meet Maggie and Boudreaux.
These two pups are sure to make your students smile and maybe even laugh out loud. Maggie is a sunglasses-wearing yellow lab mix, and Boudreaux is an adventurous yogurt-tasting beagle. They live with two cats, one turtle, and two goldfish.
This 15-slide Powerpoint presents comparative and superlative adjectives for your students as only Maggie and Boudreaux can - with cuteness.
Slides 1-9 tell a story using comparative and superlative adjectives to describe the animals. Slides 10-13 explain how to form comparative and superlative adjectives.
Slide 14 is a printable student's practice page, and slide 15 is the key for the student's practice page.
This presentation is best for third graders because common core requires third graders to, "Form and use comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified." (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.1g). But, any age or any grade student that needs help with comparative and superlative adjectives will benefit from this file.
So they may have the explanation at their finger tips, printing out all of the explanatory pages (10-13) for your students is probably a good idea. And, of course, you will want to print out the student's practice page.
However, if printing is a no-go right now, then students can easily work the practice page on their own paper.
You choose whether you read the Powerpoint to your students or have your students read it to you, but I believe they will enjoy reading this one out loud.
Thanks for considering my work:)
