Activity:

An Adverb Acting Game

3.4 based on 74 ratings

What You Need:

  • 20 small slips of paper
  • 20 flashcards
  • 2 paper bags
  • Pen

What You Do:

  1. Start by helping your kids remember what adverbs are and some examples of adverbs. Help them write down 20 different adverbs, one on each flashcard. If they need more ideas, you can suggest examples such as “slowly”, “easily”, and “often”.
  2. Put the 20 flashcards into one of the paper bags.
  3. Take the strips of paper and have your kids write one sentence on each piece of paper about tasks they do throughout the day. For example, “I get ready for school in the morning.”
  4. Place the strips of paper into the other bag.
  5. Next, have your kids choose one flashcard and one slip of paper from each of the bags without showing you. Ask them to act out the sentence while incorporating the adverb. For instance, they could act out getting ready for school quickly or slowly.
  6. Try to guess what action and adverb they are acting out. When you have gone through all the cards, you can add new or more complex adverbs for an additional challenge!
