Here are some words and concepts that will be covered in Lesson Six of the downloadable Lesson Guide (446K PDF file).
Beautiful; Gorgeous: having pleasing qualities
Tiny: very small size
- "Gorgeous" is stronger than "beautiful"
- These words can describe things to look at and to listen to.

- The opposite is ugly.
Easy: doesn't take much effort to do
- There are many words on a continuum that refer to size: tiny, small, little, big, large, huge, giant.
- Adjectives are relative: a small elephant is bigger than a large dog.
Very: added to an adjective for emphasis
- Many things are easy to do (but different people find different things easy).
- "It is easy to __________."

- "Piece of cake" means "easy."
