Learning Objectives

  • Write a sentence on the board that contains an adverb (e.g. The students laughed loudly.)
  • Underline the word loudly and label it as an adverb. Explain that in this sentence, the adverb answers the question, "How did the students laugh?" Remind students that adverbs can answer other questions too, such as when, where, or how much.
  • Tell students that an adverb is a descriptive word that modifies or qualifies a verb, adjective, or another adverb. Adverbs express a time, place, manner, degree, or frequency.
