Today Intermediate students learned about comparative and superlative adjectives today: Expensive, More expensive, Most expensive - etc.
However, they were very tired (which they expressed) and it caused them to lose focus.
The were confused by the difference (or lack thereof) between less expensive and cheaper. However, when we talked about cold food, Douglas (GT) wrote "pizza." and said "When you go to the store it is in the freezer so it is cold." So we learned a new word: frozen for frozen pizza and Elizabeth (Untitled) said, "Ah, like the movie?" Great thoughts! Students then couldn't decide which was colder: ice-cream or frozen pizza which meant they were starting to grasp the comparative idea.
We'll continue work on adjectives next week!
