There are 2 sets of adverb choices. Preselect which set you want to use first.
As the child learns those adverbs, move on to the 2nd set.
Sloth crawls (slowly, lazily), dog runs (quickly, excitedly), man yells (loudly, angrily), baby sleeps
(quietly, peacefully), sun shines (brightly, warmly), children play (happily, joyfully),
fire fighter (bravely, expertly) puts out fire, she looks (closely, curiously) at spider,
boy sits (sadly, unhappily), girl steps (carefully, cautiously) into water, she holds dog (lovingly, gently),
swan swims (gracefully, elegantly)
First, explain to the child that the book is about. Explain what an adverb is and how this book is toteach how to use adverbs in a sentence.
Then, show the fill-in sentence on the LEFT side and the answer choices are on the RIGHT side.
Go over each choice, one by one, so he/she will know what the choices are.
Model to the child how to use the booklet, with one or two of the pages.
At first, you may want to only offer the student a choice of 2-3 adverbs, and gradually add more.
Some of the adverbs may be used for multiple pictures. For example, the children play joyfully AND
the dog runs joyfully. Be open to those choices.
