The adverb song!

The adverb song!

This is a song teaching children about adverbs and how to use them. You can sing this song together as a class, and act out the different adverbs for extra fun (and to help them remember!). I've actually heard children humming this as they write, to remind them where and how to add adverbs. Music aids memory retention and increases engagement and enjoyment of learning in children. If they can sing a skill, they will remember it!
