Have I mentioned before how much I am L.O.V.I.N.G. my Spring Break? Relaxing and hanging out in my PJs all day has inspired me to create these little superheroes: These guys will help teach my students about adding “-er” and “-est” to the end of words. The actual superheroes are “-er” because they are
