Qualifiers!

Hi everyone!  Brr it is cold outside!
One of my ELD groups have been working on biographies in their regular classroom and I started to notice the awkwardness in their writing and speaking as they prepared their book reports and oral presentations. 
Time for a couple of lessons on Qualifiers! 

WHAT IS A QUALIFIER?
A word or phrase that precedes an adjective or adverb and increases or decreases the quality or meaning of the word.

WHICH WORDS ARE QUALIFIERS?
Here are some of the most common qualifiers in English (though some of these words have other functions as well): very, quite, rather, somewhat, more, most, less, least, too, so, just, enough, indeed, still, almost, fairly, really, pretty, even, a bit, a little, a (whole) lot, a good deal, a great deal, kind of, sort of.

REMEMBER…
·      qualifiers do not modify verbs
·      qualifiers do not have adverb derivational suffixes, with one or two exceptions, like really and fairly
·      qualifiers cannot be made comparative or superlative
·      qualifiers do not intensify


Happy Teaching!
