What is the role of an adverb? After checking out the example with your class, use a worksheet to assess their understanding of adverbs and the words they modify. In the second exercise, learners will identify whether the adverb tells how, when, where, or to what extent. Answers are provided for the two exercises (and five that aren't included) on the final page.
A thorough explanation of comparative and superlative adverbs opens this resource. It takes up three-fourths of a page. Then learners identify the adverbs and verbs they modify in four sentences. They then choose from either the comparative or superlative adverb provided to correctly complete 10 sentences. Then, they complete seven sentences using the adverbs of their choice. Finally, they complete a 10-item review and assess section.
Your class reviews adverb usage, identifies adverbs in sentences, writes the comparative and superlative forms, distinguishes correct and incorrect usage in sentences, completes sentences with adverbs that tell how, where, or when. Practice is divided into four different exercises.
If you are currently teaching adverbs in your class, this resource might be for you! For this activity, learners review adverbs and example sentences, identify and rewrite sentences with too many adverbs, add adverbs to sentences, and review and assess their adverb knowledge. Supplement these activities with an adverb word bank for more language support.
Describing words abound in this lesson, which involves three stories from Houghton-Mifflin ("Dogzilla," "The Mysterious Giant of Barletta," "Raising Dragons," and "The Garden of Abdul Gasazi"). Progressively challenging activities for beginning, intermediate, and advanced English learners include using adjectives, auxiliary verbs, and adverbs to describe details from the story. This also incorporates working on writing narrative stories and summaries.
