Are you looking for some adverb activities? Check out the anchor chart below. Then follow the links to printables, games, and more. Be sure to download the mini posters. They make a terrific classroom display. My students especially love Schoolhouse Rock. You’ll hear students humming “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here.” Also BrainPop – offers a great explanation of adverbs. Be sure students take the quiz that accompanies their mini-lesson. Finally, check out the picture books that cover adverbs. Many of these have been recorded as Youtube videos.

Anchor Chart Idea
Anchor charts are a great reference guide for students. At a glance, students can check the rules. Just by having a variety of anchor charts that change often, students absorb a world of knowledge.
