This lesson is designed to teach and review students’ knowledge about adjectives and adverbs and remind them of some things they may have forgotten. The lesson can be taught by you or a substitute in one to two class periods, but I planned it to be taught as mini-lessons every day for a week. This allows students to absorb the concept and use it in several ways over a longer time period. In this way, the knowledge should stay with them. I intended these activities to be used first thing in class every day as a bell-ringer activity. They are straight-forward and simple so that students can absorb the basic concepts easily.
I think having all the little pieces in place such as knowing how to use adjectives to make writing more interesting and how to use adverbs to make verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs clearer and more precise is essential to strong, unambiguous writing.
So, no matter what the age of your students, they can benefit from this lesson. It can serve as a teach and practice piece for younger students or a review and practice piece for older students.
