The "teeter-totter" rule (for comparatives) and "best ribbon" rule (for superlatives) really seemed to help my lower level ELLs remember when to use each suffix. If you look carefully (it is rather small), you will notice that I also wrote "is _____er than" on the teeter totter. This is SUCH a difficult sentence structure for even intermediate and early-advanced ELL's. There were times when students were writing independently that I spotted students checking the anchor chart for this sentence frame specifically!
