Why and how is a song about Adverbs effective for students?
Adverbs are used to describe how, where, or when an action takes place. They are a powerful, and often overlooked, part of speech. Adverbs can provide specific insight to completely alter the message the reader is receiving. For example, I could say, “Robert excitedly approached the rollercoaster and eagerly took his seat,” or I could say,” Robert cautiously approached the rollercoaster and hesitantly took his seat.” By simply changing the adverbs I choose, I changed the entire understanding of the situation for my reader. Young writers can benefit from harnessing the power adverbs can provide. The catchy melody makes this song a student favorite!
