A. Review

Good afternoon, class!


Good afternoon too, Maam!

May we have a short prayer?


(The pupils stand.)
Thank you.

I have here a list of words.


Kindly read them.
(The pupils read the words.)

dark sharp cute


sharper tall clearest
clear sharpest cutest
cuter darkest taller
tallest clearer darker
What do we call these words again? Yes, Marvie.
Those words are called adjectives, Maam.
Very good.

So what are adjectives then? Lets try, Angel.


Adjectives are words used to describe persons, things,
animals, places or events, Maam.
Youre right, Angel.

Adjectives are words used to describe persons,


animals, places, things or events.

But we said that adjectives are not only used to


simply describe persons, animals, places, things or
events. They also describe to compare two or more
persons, places, animals, things or events. Right?
Yes, Maam.
So, when we are comparing two or more persons,
places, things, animals or events, what are we
referring to?
May I have, Pauline.
The degrees of comparison, Maam.
Very good.
How many degrees of comparison do we have?
Yes, Samira.
We have three, Maam.
What are these? Name them, Aerith.
The three degrees of comparison are the positive,
comparative and the superlative, Maam.
Thats right. Now, lets go back to the chart.
I want you to place these words according to their
degrees.
Positive Comparative Superlative
dark darker darkest
sharp sharper sharpest
clear clearer clearest
cute cute cutest
tall taller tallest

B. Lesson Proper

1. Motivation

Alright! I have here four pictures and phrases.


Now, what I want you to do is to match the phrases
with the pictures that best describe each. Is it clear,
class?
Yes, Maam.
to be exactly like another or
correspond exactly

a sports contest

a slender piece of wood tipped


with a flammable mixture

a person or thing that


harmonizes with another
a slender piece of a person or thing
wood tipped with a that harmonizes
flammable mixture with another

to be exactly like
a sports contest another or
correspond

Bravo! Do you think they matched the phrases with


the pictures correctly?
Yes, Maam.
So what word do you think these pictures and
phrases describe?
(The pupils try to guess the word.)
(The teacher distributes 4 sets of jumbled letters to
pupils for them to arrange and to know the word
within 1 minute)

a slender piece of a person or thing


wood tipped with a that harmonizes
flammable mixture with another

match
q e u l g
Did the group 2 get the correct word?
Yes, Maam.
A round of applause to group 2 class.

What is the word again?


(The pupils shout the answer - Match, Maam!)
So, based on the activity, what have you noticed
about the word, match?
The word has many meanings.
Very good!

2. Presentation

The word match is one example of the words


with more than one meaning.

When words have more than one meaning, we are


also talking of words with multiple meanings. And
that is what we are going to discuss today.

3. Discussion

Let us read the sentences, class.

1. That coat is a good match for the dress.


2. Find someone who has played in a soccer match.
3. He looked for a match to light the candle.
4. Do the two socks match?
(The pupils read the sentences.)
What do these sentences have in similar?
They all contain the word match.
Yes. Good.
As you can see, each sentence contains the word
match.

The word match was used differently in each


sentence, so lets try to find out its meanings.

What you are going to do is to choose here the


appropriate meaning of the underlined word used in
each sentence.
Did I make myself clear, class?
Yes, Maam.
Who wants to read the first sentence and give its
meaning? Try it, EJ.
1. That coat is a good match for the dress.
a person or thing that harmonizes with another
How about the second sentence? Yes, Arnel.
2. Find someone who has played in a soccer match.
a sports contest
The third sentence? Okay, lets have Deijin.
3. He looked for a match to light the candle.
a slender piece of wood tipped with a flammable mixture
And the last? Yes, Junelle.
4. Do the two socks match?
to be exactly like another or correspond exactly
Do you think they answered them right?
Yes, Maam.
Yes, they answered them all correctly.

I have here another activity for you.


Choose the appropriate meaning of the highlighted
word in each sentence.
(meanings of the word are flashed in the screen)
(The pupils actively raise their hands to answer said activity.)

The little boy likes reading In a big city, you may see
stories to his dog. buildings with many stories.

She won the second place in There are 60 seconds in a


the swimming competition. minute.

We have an orange tree in our The length of this table is less


back yard. than a yard.

4. Generalization

So, what did you notice about the meanings of the


words?
They have multiple meanings.
Very good. So how did you identify the meaning of
the words from the several meanings given?
We identified the meaning of the words by knowing how
the words were used in the sentence.
Very good! Say it again, Jhanelle?
(Jhanelle repeats what her classmates tell.)
So, you see, the meaning attached to the word will
depend on how it was used in the sentence.
Did you understand class?
Yes, Maam.
Are you sure?
Yes, Maam.

5. Application

Alright! Lets see then if you were able to


understand really our lesson for today.

I will group you into four. While the music is


playing, you pick one paper strip in this box and
pass it to your seatmates until everyone gets their
own paper strips. Dont open it until I will tell you
to do it, okay?
Yes, Maam.
Lets now start.
You may now open your paper strips. Those who
have the same color as yours will be your
groupmates.
(The pupils have their paper strips with them already.)
Go to your groups now.
(The pupils will go to their own groups.)
Now, this is what you are going to do. I will give
each group two sentences. Then, you are going to
identify the meaning of the highlighted word in
each sentence by choosing the correct meaning
inside these envelopes that Im going to give you.
Did everyone understand?
Yes, Maam.
I will only give you 2 minutes to do that so all
members should cooperate.
If you are done, choose your reporter to report your
output.
You may now start.
(The pupils start the activity.)

I have here another set of activity for you. But this
time, it is going to be an individual work already.
You are going to write sentences using words with
multiple meanings. But before that, let me introduce
you first the words which you are going to use in a
sentence. As you can see, each of the three words
has two meanings provided. All you need to do is to
choose only one meaning for each word. Then, with
the help of the meaning, write one sentence for
each word. Lastly, write the meaning youve chosen
below each sentence.
(The teacher shows an example of the activity.)

I should see three sentences in your papers. Alright?

Yes, Maam.
6. Value Integration

What did you do to make your group work


successful?

Yes. Cooperation is important because it allows you We cooperated with one another, Maam.
to work together to finish your work faster and
easier.

Any more questions?

None, Maam.
