Printable Adverb Activities and Anchor Chart for the Classroom

Students love to discuss what is better. I enjoy listening to their conversations throughout the school year because they usually offer an opportunity to plug grammar usage or teach a new concept. When students start classroom chats about what is better (sports teams, music, foods, movies etc.) I always use it as an opportunity to review or teach adverbs.

Today I'm highlighting two adverb activities and an anchor chart in hopes that they can enhance your instruction. These printable resources are free for download.

PRINTABLE ADVERB ACTIVITIES

#1 ADVERBS MINI LESSON FOR GRADES 3–5

An adverb is a word that generally describes a verb. Adverbs describe verbs by telling how, when, or where an action happens. When teaching adverbs in the lower grade levels, I like to start with identifying and using adverbs. My Adverbs Grammar Mini Lesson & Practice Sheet for grades 3–5 is a great resource for reviewing or teaching adverbs in the classroom. This download includes a guided instruction section, guided adverb activities, and an independent practice activity.

 #2 GET SHAKIN' WITH ADVERBS FOR GRADES 6–12

Combine writing and speaking with the Get Shakin' with Adverbs Activity. This simple revision strategy encourages students to match appropriate adverbs to sentence stems. After each sentence is matched with an adverb, have students read their sentences aloud for assessment. Students can work individually, in pairs, or in groups, engaging all students. You will want to add this exercise to your adverbs activities teaching toolbox!

ADDITIONAL ADVERBS ANCHOR CHART

One way to edit and revise writing is to ask questions regarding word choice particularly adverbs and adjectives.  Adverbs tell about verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Often, the adverb ends in –ly but not always. The following questions about adverbs provide one way students can self-edit and strengthen their writing using adverbs. Are adverbs modifying verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs? What word tells when? What words tells how? What word tells to what extent? Help your students identify adverbs that do not end in –ly with my Adverbs Anchor Chart (pictured above). Download it for free!
