Teaching Adverbs to Kids
Are you wondering how to teach adverbs to your kids? If so, here are a teaching tips as you get stared.
First of all, if you are starting with an early elementary aged student, it’s important that they understand that an adverb tells us more about the verb.
Adverbs will answer the questions: where? when? how? how often? and how much? And will commonly end with ‘-ly’ (gently, gorgeously, greatly, generally, godly, etc).
Then, as you move into the upper elementary grades, you want to elaborate on what an adverb can do. Then, begin to explain that adverbs modify not only verbs, but they can also modify another adverbs and adjectives as well. See the different adverb uses below:
Adverb sentence examples for kids:
- Adverb describing a verb: The girl was good.
- Adverb describing another adverb: The girl was very good.
- Adverb describing a adjective: Sally was a very good girl.

- Fill in the adverb game: Give you kids a sentence and ask them to add a descriptive adverb. To make an added challenge, see if they can provide multiple adverb ideas that could possibly fit in the sentence.
- Brainstorm Adverb Ideas: Start by choosing a verb (shone, run, sang, danced, etc) and place that word in the middle of your brainstorm map. (available in the free printable.) Next, come up with a list of adverbs that could possibly describe that verb. Lastly, you can discuss which question the adverbs answered about the verb.
