Ss knew what the vocabulary of the day meant so we worked on creating and writing superlatives today (the best, the busiest, the most expensive, etc). The list we wrote for why we shop at certain supermarkets was: It has the best coupons. It has the best parking. It has the best variety. It has the best deals. It has the best discounts. It's the closest. It has the best specials. It has the best prices.
