Provide your students with engaging, interactive activities to help them improve their usage and identification of adverbs.
What is an Adverb? Lessons for Elementary Learners
An adverb is a word that is used to modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Many adverbs end in “-ly” and usually appear next to the word they modify. Students often struggle with identifying and using adverbs in their writing, so we’ve created a fun (and active) Google Slides activity to help them grasp the concept.
This Google Slides interactive activity shows that students can identify and use adverbs to describe nouns, verbs, or other adverbs in text.
Students will use click, drag, and drop word tiles to sort adverbs, complete sentences using different forms of adverbs, and identify adverbs in context. The following activities are included.
- Identify and mark the adverbs used in a paragraph of text.
- Complete sentences using the correct form of adverbs to maintain agreement.
- Correct adverb errors within the text.
- Identify and sort comparative and superlative adverbs.
- Identify adverbs used in a paragraph of text.
Scaffolding + Extension Tips
- Challenge students who already understand the concept to write five sentences of their own using adverbs
- Support students who need help by completing the activity as a whole class or in a small group. Read the words and sentences on the slides and have the students come to the board and interact with the presentation.
