Comparative forms raceThe teacher or a student shouts out one adjective and students race to shout out the correct comparative form, getting one point for a correct answer but minus five for a wrong guess. This works best with regular comparative adjectives they havent seen the comparative forms of before, plus maybe a few ones that dont match the most common rules such as more fun. You could also let them use their dictionaries (racing to be first to find the correct answer) if none of them are confident enough to use their own knowledge or guess.

Comparatives clap clap clapThe Clap Clap Clap game is a popular one in which students sit in a circle and clap three times then pause, with the next person having to say something relevant (e.g. a word which starts with the last letter of the previous word) on exactly that fourth beat. With comparatives you can get them to make a sentence with a new adjective comparing something to the last object that was said. For example, the first person says Banana and the second person says An apple is crunchier than a banana. The next person must then say something like A bus is heavier than an apple. If anyone misses their cue or uses a noun or adjective that has been used before, the game starts again with a new series. You can limit the nouns to one kind of word or allow anything at all.Countables- 1,2,3,4,5ExamplesCalls ----------- 1 call 2 callsMinutes ------ 2 minutesWhatsapps 2 WhatsappsUncountables- cant countExamplesWaterTimeInternetMore/fewer + countable noun + thanMore/less + uncountable noun + thanVerb + more/less + thanExamplesI get more calls than youI spend more time on the phone than you
