Product Description
The publishing company that created the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew detective series also produced the Tom Swift adventure series. Whenever Tom Swift spoke, his comments were usually accompanied by adverbs that described how he said his words. The adverbs with his comments often made plays on words, or puns. Such sentences became known as "Tom Swifties." Example: "The sun is shining today," said Tom brightly.

This worksheet on adverbs with -ly that tell how some things were done provides practice through Tom Swifty type of sentences. In order to determine the correct adverb, students must figure out how the spoken words relate to the adverb used. Students also have the opportunity to try writing their own Tom Swifties!
