Introduction

(5 minutes)
  • Play I Spy with comparatives and superlatives. For example, say “I spy with my little eye, a colorful notebook.” When students pick the one you secretly selected, say, “I spy with my little eye, a more colorful notebook.” When students pick the one you secretly selected, say, “I spy with my little eye, the most colorful notebook.”
  • If they identify a colorful notebook, but it’s not the one you chose, you can say, “That is colorful, but it’s not the one I spy.”
