This 57 slide power point includes the following:
A review of what an adjective is
How to find the base word in an adjective
When to add -er and when to add -est to an adjective
Rules for when to change the spelling of the adjective when adding -er and -est
The presentation gives explanations and examples and then students have an opportunity to practice a few problems on paper or a personal white board. I have them use their white board and then show me their answer when I say, "Show Me". This helps keep the lesson moving along and the students engaged.
I can statements are included along the way so that students know what the target is that they are working on. This also keeps administrators happy! :) (Targets are listed at the bottom of this description.)
The last slide is a 5 sentence exit ticket asking students to change an adjective into the correct comparative form and spell the new word correctly. (See exit ticket questions at bottom of this description.)
