This pack is part of our range of resources which target specific grammatical structures. Many children who have receptive and expressive language difficulties require focused interventions to introduce new syntactic forms into their language system. These attractive, colourful, fully illustrated activities in worksheet format, allow the adult to model the correct form, facilitate high levels of repetition and reinforcement, and encourage the child to use comparatives independently.
The comparative form develops later than the superlative, at about the age of five years (Brown, 1973).
Aims: To develop understanding and use of comparatives.
Age Range: Suitable for use with children from 5 years – 8 years plus.
