Sentence Examples For Adverbs That Begin With I

Sometimes sentence examples can give you a better view of how adverbs function. With that being said, let me give you some examples.

Remember the job of the adverb is to either describe a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.Furthermore, an adverb will answer one of the following questions: how? where? when? how much? or how often?

How to Teach Adverbs to Kids

Once kids understand nouns (subjects), verbs, and basic sentence structure, you can begin to introduce adverbs.

As you introduce adverbs to early elementary aged kids, it’s important they they understand that an adverb tells us more about the verb. They will also need to know that addverbs will answer the questions: where? when? how? how often? and how much?

And they will commonly end with ‘-ly’ (intelligently, incomprehensibly, importantly, imperfectly, etc).

With your upper elementary students, you want to elaborate on what an adverb can do. Then, proceed to explain that adverbs not only modify verbs, but they can also modify another adverbs and adjectives as well. See the various adverb examples below:

Adverb sentence examples for kids:

  • Adverb describing a verb: She imaginatively told a story.
  • Adverb describing another adverb: The girl very imaginatively told a story.
  • Adverb describing a adjective: The girl’s story was very imaginative.

Fun Adverb Activities for Kids

A great way for kids to grasp the parts of speech is to proved them with fun adverb activities to interact with. Here are a few fun adverb activities for kids:

  1. Finish the sentence: Give your kids a subject verb combination and see if they can come up with an adverb! (We like to use these picture prompt cards which are included in the free adverb printable at the end of this post.)
  1. Write a short story: Have fun writing a short story with your kids. See how many adverbs you can add to your story. Another way to do this same activity, is to write the story first, then see how many adverbs you can find once it is completed.
  1. Read grammar-teaching picture books: A fun, yet super-simple way to help your kids learn about the different parts of speech is to read picture books about the parts of speech. These books are usually very colorful and do a great job of simplifying grammar concepts so they can easily be grasped by kids.
  1. Adverb Snacking: Break your kids up into pairs. Then have them take turns describing how each other is eating their snack (quickly, loudly, slowly, etc). Have your kids write each of their adverb choices down. After the snack, share the adverbs out loud.
