Adverbs, is a short video explaining what an adverb is. The video is made up of student drawings which illustrate an adverb. The drawings were then used to make a collaborative video. It is not an elaborate video but it illustrates student work and brings a visual element to the understanding of adverbs.
Activity Learning Objectives
Following the video the students will:
- have a basic understanding about what an adverb is
- recall one adverb from the video
- identify an adverb not included in the video based on their understanding of what adverbs are
- analyze the list of adverbs created by their classmates to identify which words are adverbs
Activity Assessment Strategies
As an introductory lesson the teacher will be able to assess student learning when going through the note cards which the students identified as adverbs. Also, as the students work to categorize the words as adverbs or not, the teacher will have another opportunity to assess whether the students grasped the concept of adverbs on the words they brainstormed which were not included in the video.
