Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Adverbs - Section 4: Closure


This lesson is connected to the previous lesson on adjectives.  Some students kept getting adverbs confused with adjectives.  To help clarify for them, I explained that adverbs tell how, when, where, and to what degree.  You can usually add -ly to adjectives to make them adverbs.  To decide if a word is an adverb, I instructed students to ask themselves how, when, where, or to what degree something is done.  The answer is the adjective in the sentence.  Adjectives, on the other hand, tell what kind, which one, how many, and how much.  To help students more, I would call out adjectives and they would say modify nouns and pronouns.  When I called out adverbs, they would say modify verbs.  We repeated this several times until they could distinguish adverbs modify verbs and adjectives modify nouns and pronouns.
