This resource includes:
**This whiteboard friendly mini-lesson will be a great way to introduce adverbs and their usage and importance in sentences. Included are some sentence examples and opportunities for guided practice.
2 literacy center activities are included in the resource:
ADVERB SORT- Based on their understanding of the mini-less students are given a follow up activity where they sort a given set of adverbs onto mats labeled WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW as they relate to how the adverb modifies the verb.
ADVERB MATCH UP- To further student understanding and mastery, this activity has 3 components:
Students select a picture card and use discrimination skills to observe the details in the picture. They then select a corresponding sentence that matches their interpretation of the sentence. Finally they complete the sentence by adding an adverb that will add information about the verb in the sentence. (Students select adverbs from a given set of adverb cards.)
To assist you with providing the differentiated levels of practice needed for your students, each activity has more than one variation in the way the activity can be implemented in your literacy centers.
**Printable student answer documents are provided to assist with student accountability. As you are well aware, when some students are working in less structured environments such as centers or small collaborative learning groups, they are often distracted from the task at hand. Student answer documents provide a visual piece to remind students they are accountable for the work at the end of the work period.
DOCUMENTATION/AUTHENTIC WORK SAMPLES
Student answer documents are also excellent for using as documentation as well as work samples of authentic pieces of student work when some type of substantiation is required for student portfolios, IEPs, AIPs, Parent-Teacher conferences, special education placement conferences, etc.
**Answer Keys are provided in teacher friendly formats.
These activities are flexible resources and can be used in many ways such as:
*language work for literacy centers
*language work for small collaborative groups
* *as assessment/benchmark check-ups
You can never have too many of these kinds of resources to reinforce skills- especially on days when regular classroom routines are disrupted by activities such as school picture day, assemblies, etc.
