Do we add -er and -est to the end of the adjective, or do we add more and most to the front of the word? That is the question!...and questions certainly do arise when it comes to comparative and superlative adjectives. 

Grammar sure can be complicated. That's why it's beneficial to set up engaging activities and captivating visuals for students while explicitly teaching these complex skills.

Here are a few activities you can use to help your students master comparative and superlative adjectives.

In this post, you will find some engaging activities for common and proper nouns that will help you do just that.

Why should we include homophones activities and other vocabulary learning opportunities in our upper elementary classroom? Isn't teaching context clues enough? These might be some of the questions that run through our heads when we think of explicitly teaching vocabulary.

As teachers, we know that there is a direct correlation between strong vocabulary and reading comprehension, but for some reason, the older students get the less direct instruction they receive in vocabulary. Although context clues are an effective way of figuring out the meaning of words, having a vast vocabulary word bank makes reading comprehension so much easier.
