PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you tired of the overuse of adjectives like “nice” and “cute” in your students’ writing and ready to move beyond adjectives and adverbs? It’s time to add in some comparatives and superlatives!

Guide your young writers along the road to powerful writing with this card set for your writing center. Suitable for first through third grades, the set includes 153 comparative and superlative word cards and 36 picture/idea mats, plus a blank page, so you can print and then add a picture of your own! Each mat has spaces for 8 comparatives or superlatives. As a bonus, each picture used on a mat is also included on a printable page. Just cut each picture page
apart and use the nine cards on each page as the basis for the activities below, or put them into your writing center as story starters.
Students will choose a picture mat or picture card and then find 6-9 word cards that are appropriate to use in writing about the chosen picture, creating a moveable "graphic organizer". This can be the end of the activity, or students can move on to…
* Tell the story to a partner, using as many of the adjectives as possible.
* Write and illustrate a story about the picture, using the selected adjectives to enrich the writing.

This set is also suitable for use in whole class writing lessons with the document camera. There are also two posters for you to use when you introduce comparatives and superlatives, and for
display in your writing center.
