“I did my GOODEST, Mrs. Richliew!”

Have your kids ever said that to you?!  Well, not the Mrs. Richliew part.  :)
One of our 3rd grade standards is comparative and superlative adjectives.  It has always driven me nuts that kids (and even some adults) don’t use the correct adjectives when speaking and writing.
I created this center to help my kids get extra practice with this skill.
Here’s a pic of the center last week:
I included a tricky one for the last adjective.  He he!
For the word “good,” some of the students thought I messed up and forgot to include the matches.  I assured them they were there.  “No, Mrs. Richliew.  You don’t have “gooder” and “goodest” in the bag.
After assuring them a second time, I stepped away but stayed close enough to hear their conversation.  Oh, how funny!  That “ah ha!” moment came sooner than later.  
“OH!!!  It’s “better” and “best!”
Gotta love those moments!  There’s also an assessment included in the download.  I can’t wait to give it next week.  After our discussions and center practice, they should do quite well!
What are some of the goofy things your kids have said?!
