Comparative Degree Grammar Activity -Primary Class


Academic Standard: Grammar and Speaking
Topic: Positive vs Comparative,
Grade: 3rd.
                                        Teaching grammar to primary school children is somewhat difficult. We cannot teach grammar isolate since their cognitive levels are not that much to understand the grammar topics. So we need keen on teaching grammar for primary school children. We always teach the grammar for the primary children in the situational base. Later they understand the basic structure and feature of the topic and use in their communication.


                                  So I always use an activity to teach the grammar to my children. Here I gave this activity to teach and understand the primary basics of the Postive and Comparative degree for my 3rd-grade children. I introduced the positive and comparative forms of the adjective words by actions and gestures. Once children understand the meaning of the words, big - bigger, small - smaller....etc. I explained the usage of the words in a sentence.
  •    I am a big lion.(Pos)  
  • It is bigger than you.( Com)
  •    He is tall.(Pos)            
  • She is taller than you.( Com)
  •    Lalitha is tall. (pos)   
  •  Devi is taller than Lalitha.(Com)

                           Then I assigned an activity to understand the topic better. I supplied charts to my children and guided them to fold the chart like this and write the positive forms of the words. Later I cut the chart shown in the pictures and then folded. Now I asked my children to write the letters will add to the word when the words change into the comparative forms. They wrote er, ier and r on the cutting slip to turn the word into comparative form. Finally, I asked my children to present theirs by reading the words in front of the class. You can see my children's presentation in the below video. I hope you enjoy the post and use in your classroom.
