First Friday Freebie

Happy New Year!

This year I am going to be adding a new feature to the blog. My First Friday Freebie will appear the first Friday of each month and provide you with some type of lesson, activity, and/or printable to help you incorporate more visual literacy into your classroom.

Adjective Comparisons

You can download my first First Friday Freebie here. “Adjective Comparison” is a language arts activity for grades 2-4 and is aligned to the 3rd Grade CCSS ELA-Literacy.L.3.1g. It includes activities to teach the positive, comparative, and superlative degrees.

This activity can be used along with the book Things that are most in the world by Judi Barrett to provide students with visual ways to think about and understand comparisons. I love the silly illustrations and the ways this book makes you think about comparisons. Can you think of anything that would be smellier than a skunk convention?!

Extension activities are included with ideas about how to integrate this language arts activity with a science lesson using sites like Extreme Science, The Travel Almanac, and Guinness World Records.

Have fun learning and comparing!
