Adverbs and Adjectives Digital Learning Resource

After teaching your students about the purpose and use of adverbs and adjectives to modify verbs and nouns, have them practise with real sentences using this 10-slide interactive game. 

This self-paced task contains two types of activities:

The first presents students with a simple sentence which is missing a part of speech. Students must select from two multiple-choice answers (buttons) which word fits into the sentence to correctly modify the word. They drag the correct word into the position in the sentence where it belongs. 

The second activity-type provides a complete sentence containing an underlined adverb or adjective and asks the student to decide whether the correct part of speech has been used. They select “yes” or “no” and drag a heart shape to their chosen answer. 

Once students have completed all of the exercises, they submit for teacher checking!

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your literacy lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through literacy groups, whole class lessons, or even as homework assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Provide students with visual resources to support their understanding of what an adjective and an adverb is, such as our Nouns, Proper Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs and Conjunctions Posters. Support students with 1-1 or small group scaffolding. 

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Challenge students to create a slide presentation containing 5 sentences with adverbs and 5 sentences with adjectives (one sentence per slide) and share them with a peer.

🧑‍🏫 Group Learning

Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.
