Teaching – “er” adjectives

Here’s another great powerpoint presentation. This time the powerpoint comes from a teacher I work with. It shows students how to make comparisons by attaching “er” to adjectives (e.g. bigger, taller, faster, etc.).

Time: about 15 or 20 minutes

Level: 2nd grade JHS

Which is stronger, Godzilla or King Kong?

In the book there is a pretty interesting story to work with involving King Kong and Godzilla. But I think this powerpoint can make this lesson more interactive and interesting for the students. Download the powerpoint below and check it out for yourself:

Why this powerpoint is good 

  • It compares internationl landmarks, raising student awareness about the rest of the world
  • It is presented in a quiz-show style so students can enjoy the thrill of guessing and discovery
  • There is a section at the end where students can personalize the learning point by choosing between two things (e.g. math and English) and using the grammar to tell others about their preferences.

 Variation:

  • The powerpoint uses Japanese translations for all the sentences — something which may be helpful to students. I have a feeling, though, that given the right class, it could be done without it.
