 Adjective/Adverb Review

In pairs, fold a piece of paper to 
create four columns, 
and then write 
10 adjectives.

10 adverbs

If you have extra time, work on Stand Tall

a naming word. It names a person, place, thing, idea, living creature, quality, or action.

We need three class fact-checkers.
The teacher will draw a number and draw one of the four parts of speech you have collected.
You will circle that number on your collection of that part of speech.
The teacher will draw from her own lists:
Draw a noun for adjectives

Draw a verb for adverbs

Draw an adjective for nouns

Draw an adverb for verbs

(Teacher has her own set on slips of paper in separate envelopes for each of those parts of speech.)  draws the number, then draws one of the slips for the appropriate part of speech.  

 You give yourself

1 point if it really is that part of speech

+ 2 points if it really could fit with the word that has been drawn.
