BRIEF OUTLINE: Students practice comparative structure sentences via a worksheet.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. The JTE first provides a grammar point demonstration for adjectives ending in -er and adjectives modified by "more."
  2. The ALT then pronounces each pair of adjectives in the toolbox twice and students repeat in unison.
  3. The ALT then selects any unfamiliar words contained in the work area of the worksheet, such as "giraffe," "witch," "cable car," etc. and practices pronouncing each word with the students. The JTE then provides an explanation for each word(s) in Japanese.
  4. The ALT and JTE then explain to the students that they are to use a word (-er or "most" + adjective) from the toolbox to complete each of the 15 comparative sentences. No word(s) may be used twice.
  5. Once the students have completed the worksheet the ALT then selects volunteers or chooses students to provide answers. Each student must say the complete sentence, not just the correct word(s).
  6.   

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This is a lesson for New Horizon, Book 2, unit 7, pages 76-77.
  • Limit the time to complete the worksheet to 15 minutes.
  •
