This product is differentiated practice with mini-task cards and printables. I tried to include a mix of irregular adjectives, one-syllable adjectives, and multi-syllable adjectives with -y endings.
I have spent a small fortune in printing ink and decided to create mini-task cards (approximately 2"X 3") to save paper and ink. The cards can be cut out and glued onto 3"X5" index cards if you want them to be bigger for a center. Another way to use them would be to leave them on one sheet and have students complete them that way.
NEW: I added a page of core standards, ESL Insights (a guide to help teach ELL students with this product), and a sentence writing practice page
Here's what is included:
1. Nine mini-task cards with recording sheet
2. Comparative, superlative sort with mixed adjective types
3. Words in context non-fiction story with fill in the blank
4.Complete the comparative/superlative table with one syllable adjectives
5. Circle the best choice comparative/superlative
6. Sentence writing practice
7. core standards
8. ESL Insights
There are 16 pages total which include a title page and credit page with 14 pages of usable material. I sometimes print the title pages of my products and laminate them to pocket folders. Then I get pouches or envelopes for the small pieces and make copies of the other pages for instant centers.
There are answer keys for each page including the task cards except for the sentence writing page.
I geared this product to third grade, but it can be used successfully in grades 2-4.
