  1. Adverbs – degrees of comparison

  2. Positive degree • Just the plain ol’ regular version of the adverb! Ex: The fish swims FAST. Ex: We talk OFTEN. *****Used to describe ONLY ONE action*****

  3. Comparative degree • Used to compare ONLY TWO actions!!! Ex: The eel swims faster than the fish. Ex: They talk more often than we do. Some adverbs are irregular and need “more” added in front of the word rather than adding ‘-er.’

  4. Superlative degree • Used when THREE OR MORE actions are being compared. Ex: The shark swims the FASTEST of the three. Ex: My cousins talk MOST OFTEN.

  5. Practice Write the correct form of the adjective or adverb in parenthesis that completes each sentence below. • The dolphin is (playful) than that one. Answer: more playful • Ocean animals are (interesting) than plants. • People trapped sharks because the sharks were often (skillful) fishers than humans. • Some sharks are (plain) in color than others. • A dog is usually (fast) than a cat. • I found the shells (quickly) than you did.
