Al-Bashair Private School Grade Three Adjectives That Compare (er)
These are examples of adjectives: 1- The elephant is huge. 2- The pizza was cheesy. 3- That little cat is very fluffy.
The Rule 1 : To compare between two people or two things we use adjectives that compare. To form these adjectives we add (adjective + er) then we add (than): small + er = smaller than fast + er = faster than
Examples: Sam is taller than Tom. Sam Tom
The cheetah is faster than the lion.
My Grandma is older than me.
The goat is shorter than the giraffe.
The snail is slower than the rabbit.
The Rule 2 : Some adjectives have the form (C V C). In this case we double the last consonant when we add (er): big + er = bigger than fat + er = fatter than
Examples: The elephant is bigger than the chick.
