Adverb Teaching Tips for Kids:
Are you staring to introduce the different parts of speech to your kids and you are wondering how you are going to start teaching adverbs to your kids? If so, here are a few adverb teaching tips:
- For Younger Kids: Explain that an adverb tells us more about the verb.
- Teach that adverbs will answer theses questions about the verb: where? when? how? how often? and how much?
- Point out that adverbs will commonly end with ‘-ly’ (hardly, honestly, habitually, honorably, heartedly, etc).

Practical Adverb Activities for Kids
Doing a few, fun adverb activities can go a long way in your student’s learning and understanding of the different parts of speech. With that being said, let me give you some practice adverb activities you can start on today!
- Play adverb Charades: Name a verb for everyone to hear (run, sing, dance, etc) then take turns acting out adverbs that could describe that verb while everyone, who is not acting, try to guess.
- Practice Finding Adverbs: Give you kids a handful of sentences and have them practice finding the adverbs. I like to encourage my kids to find the verb first, and then figure how what word tells us more about that verb. (Free Find the Adverbs printable at the end of this post.)
- Read adverb picture books: Reading is the best way to learn speech! Get this list of picture books about adverbs and get started! Then practice identifying adverbs in some of your favorite books and see how many you can find.
