I will elicit the students information related to the previous lesson where they studied "adverbs", then use CC the meaning of "Nouns", and ask the students to provide an example of a Noun. On board. writing the Noun i will CQ the students knowledge of "adjectives to elicit descriptions to this noun. Then, I provide another Noun and ask students to guess how to compare between the two Nouns using one of the adjectives written before by writing an example on their sheet individually. their answers will be related to the delayed error correction.
Students will watch a video related to comparative adjectives, where they will see how to add different suffixes for adjectives e.g.( -er, double consonant come after a vowel "bigger", monosyllabic ending with Y "prettier", trisyllabic or more adding "more" before the adjective - more dangerous)
Following the video, I will clarify the different uses of the comparatives by drawing students attention to the words in the video using concept check the different number of syllables for each word provided on board, therefore, the students won't have difficulty understanding the meaning and usage of form of the comparative adjective in the following stage.
Having clarified the comparatives in in the previous stage, i will put the adjectives into sentences for comparison using two different nouns and concept check the meaning of the sentence e.g (mountain Everest is higher than Uludag mountain) using gestures ( two arms on different level of height ). on board, I will write the sentences referring to each one's category and clarify the form: 1 -mountain Everest is higher than Uludag mountain > noun + one syllable adj -er + than + noun - America is bigger than England > noun + double consonant adj + er + than + noun - Car is safer than bike > noun + one syllable adj ending with e + r + than + noun 2- Concert is noisier than park > noun +two syllables adj ending with Y (drop the Y) + ier + than + noun 3- basketball is more exciting than tennis > noun + more + three or more syllables adj + than + noun - Syria is more dangerous than Turkey > noun + more + three or more syllables adj + than + noun 4- iPhone is better than Samsung > Noun + irregular adj + than + noun . model each sentence and drill as WC - SS
