Adverbs

Hey Ya'll!  Today I'm going to share with you our adverb posters. We actually did these about 2 weeks ago and am just now getting around to sharing it with you. Adverbs are always so tricky for our little ones. To get started, we brainstormed a list of different types of adverbs onto our anchor chart. 

Adverbs can be such a difficult concept for kids to grasp. Visuals such as anchor charts or posters can be a great help. Come see a fun activity my class uses to learn about and review adverbs.

After reviewing these for a few days, some of my kiddos just weren't getting it. Of course, Amy from Step into Second Grade came to my rescue! She blogged about making adjective posters. I loved the idea so I decided to use them for adverbs instead. I printed out 4 verb pictures (eat, write, run, and sleep)  and glued them onto butcher paper. I split my kids up into groups and had them rotate to each one. They had to write adverbs that described each picture. Was it perfect? No! Was every word spelled correctly? No! Was it effective? YES!!! This just seemed to click with my strugglers. They used the anchor chart posted above to help guide them. I didn't hear one conversation that didn't have to do with adverbs. It was fantastic!

I displayed our final products underneath our whiteboard. They were so proud of their finished product.  A lot of the same words were repeated but that is OK!

Sometimes I get so caught up in the cuteness of things that are on TPT that I forget how effective the simple things can be.
