Adverbs with -ly

 

Today we are going to be learning how to change an adjective into an adverb.

First of all, we need to remind ourselves what an adjective is.

An adjective is a describing word.

 

Now, what is an adverb?

 

Let’s just check we can find the verb (doing word) in the sentences below.

The brown fox ran.

Jack walked down the corridor.

 

In order to make these sentences less boring, we can make them better by adding words such as quickly and quietly.

These words are called adverbs.

 

Adverbs tell us more about the verb.

 

Here are some more verbs…what do you notice about the words?

quickly      bravely     happily      angrily

 

Have a go at the worksheet below:

It can be surprising to see adverbs that you are using already:

 

Adjective          Adverb

quick                 quickly

brave                bravely

weak                 weakly

 

All we do with these types of words, is add –ly.

Let’s look at some other examples:

 

Adjective          Adverb

happy                happily

merry               merrily

angry                angrily

 

If the adjective ends in a y, we need to change it to an i before we add the suffix –ly.

Subordinating conjunctions

 

Yesterday, we looked at including extra information in a sentence using and.

Remember, a clause is a group of words that has a subject and a verb.

All simple sentences include a clause.

 

The monster roared loudly

The subject: monster

The verb: roared

  

There are a lot of subordinating conjunctions but we are going to look more closely at these four:

 

when                 if              that                  because

 

Look at the clauses below. Which of our 4 subordinating conjunctions would join these together best?

 

I used one of Jerome’s pencils. I had lost mine.

Mum said I could have dessert. I ate all my tea.

I will cut the grass. It stops raining.

The boy loved the toy. His grandfather gave it to him.

 

Well done! Let’s look at each of these as 1 whole sentence.

 

I used one of Jerome’s pencils because I had lost mine.

Mum said I could have dessert if I ate all my tea.

I will cut the grass when it stops raining.

The boy loved the toy that his grandfather gave it to him

 

The subordinating conjunction doesn’t always have to be in the middle of the sentence. It can also be used at the beginning.

 

Because I had tidied my room, my mum said I could play with the dog.

Apostrophes for possession

 

Possession: When we own or have something it is called a possession.

 

This is an Apostrophe:

 

The blue bike belongs to Isa. à Isas blue bike.

The red car belongs to Jodie. à Jodies red car.

The football belongs to Samera. à Sameras football

 

Rather than putting sophies skateboard, we need to make sure that we have the apostrophe to allow our spelling to be correct.
