Does anyone have any ideas or activities that I can use to teach comparative and superlative adverbs to low performing students? Most of the students I am trying to reach scored low on their state test. Thanks.

Maybe you could assign them sets up adverbs and do a graphic organizer or Foldable© where they could write similar sentences with the adverbs and then illustrate them accordingly?

E.g. Jon gets to school early. Sue gets to school earlier. Bob gets to school the earliest.

They could even have little captions with the people in the sentence commenting about the situation.

Jon: Wow! I'm here early!
Sue: I was here even earlier than you were.
Bob: I got to school the earliest. My alarm was set for 4am!

If you had specific ones you wanted them to work on you could create the sentences and hand them out. Or you could just give them the adverbs and let them create the sentences. You could also have them sort them into categories according to importance/emphasis if that makes sense.

comparative and superlative

I have fun with it to help them remember the difference.

I'll say "I'm going to be positive and say that I'm fast. Now compare me to someone. (I'm faster than Joe.) Now make me super (You are the fastest of us all)" I'll model a few like this than have them make up some. They seem to get the hang of just one being the positive, 2 being the comparative, and 3 or more being superlative by me saying "positive", "compare", "make it super". A lot of them already know how to use these words, it's naming them and understanding there is a difference that seems difficult.
