Lesson Plan Text

Comparative and Superlative Adjectives Stories
Story 1 suggested activities
As you read, they can guess the adjective for each object after it is mentioned, and/ or 
after you read the first adjective on each page (“John made a fast go kart”) they can make 
the comparative and superlative versions for the other two boys. 

After reading, they can draw the pictures for this story and/ or make up their own (written 
or oral) stories where people try to outdo each other but actually were wasting their time. If
they need help, you could give them suggested first sentences for such stories, for 

“A princess must marry before her 18


 birthday. Princess Jean was 17 years and 9 

months old and had rejected every prince who she had ever met. They had 3 more 
months to find the perfect future king” 


“There was only room for one more person on the mission to Mars”


“The first election for president of the world was set for June 2021”

Story 2 suggested activities
While reading, the kid(s) can say the next form of each adjective and/ or guess what is 
being talked about each time from the form (e.g. that “smelliest” will be about his breath). 
They can also guess who is being talked about before the final page. 

After reading, kids can draw pictures for each page, test each other on the comparative 
and superlative forms, and/ or write their own similar stories. Note that the stories work 
with or without a positive page near the end, depending on the final line. 

Suggested final lines
So I chose him as my pet, and I play with him every day. 

But he’s my brother, so I love him anyway. 

So he’s/ she’s still my best friend.

So I still come to his/ her English class every week.

All for Julie, the prettiest 

A comparative and superlative adjectives story by 
Alex Case

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

In a town called Moreton lived
three friends called John, 
Harry and Graham. 

One winter, a girl called Julie 
moved into the little cottage at
the end of their street. They 
thought she was the prettiest 
girl in the whole world. From 
that day, everything they did 
was just to impress Julie. 

First they tried to impress her 
with poems. 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

John wrote a long poem, 
Harry wrote a longer poem, 
and Graham wrote the 
longest poem in the whole 

Then they tried music. 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

John played a loud guitar, 
Harry played a louder 
trumpet, and Graham played 
the loudest drum in the whole 

Then they decided to show off
their engineering skills. 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

John made a fast go kart, 
Harry made a faster go kart, 
and Graham made the fastest
go kart in the whole world.

Finally, they thought she’s 
definitely be impressed by 
circus skills.

John juggled something 
dangerous, Harry juggled 
something more dangerous, 
and Graham invented the 
most dangerous juggling trick 

The next day was Julie’s 
birthday party. 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

So John bought a big present,
Harry bought a bigger 
present, and Graham bought 
the biggest present in the 
whole world, and they all 
arrived nice and early and 
ready to impress, but…

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

Julie’s garden was small, her 
cottage was smaller, and her 
door was the smallest on the 
street, so…

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

there was no space for huge 
presents, for juggling, for go 
karts, or for guitars, trumpets 
and drums. There was room 
for poems, but not for poems 
as long as John’s, Harry’s 
and Graham’s. 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

So they took everything back 
home, went into Julie’s house
with nothing and had to have 
a tea party with Julie’s little 
tea set, eat Julie’s little cakes,
play music on a little toy 
piano, and make new, smaller
presents with origami.

But they had the most fun all 
year, and when they left they 
were the happiest ever, and 
John, Harry and Graham 
were the best of friends.

His eyebrows are 
long, his nose hair is 
longer, and 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

his nose is the longest
in the world. 

His armpits are 
smelly, his farts are 
smellier, and 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

his breath is the 
smelliest in the world.

His cheeks are fat, his
legs are fatter and 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

his tummy is the 
fattest in the world. 

His elbows are sharp, 
his nails are sharper, 

Written by Alex Case for © 2017

his chin is the 
sharpest in the whole 


Written by Alex Case for © 2017

his silly faces are 
funny, his silly noises 
are funnier, and his 
jokes are the funniest 
in the whole world.

I’m still glad that he’s 
my Dad.
