Adverbs -- List in Adverbs - Page 1

This is a selected set of adverbs for the beginning student to have a starter set to help further describe actions. An ADVERB modifies a verb. It helps to tell "how," "when" or "where" the action took place. I have used it by picking a verb such as ran in a sentence such as "She ran," "She lost" or "He spoke." Students then must pick an adverb to add to the sentence such as "She ran yesterday" or "She ran quickly to the store" or "She runs annually in the big race." This gives the student a chance to use them in a sentence. An adverb can also modify another adverb. Such as "She ran very quickly to the store."
