What do adverbs do?

We are revising adverbs this week.
An adverb is a word that describes a verb,
e.g. He twisted madly to avoid the snake's fangs.

Put adverbs into these sentences as you rewrite them in your books:

  1. The raindrop ran down the window pane.
  2. The lion paced around his cage.
  3. The car swerved to aviod the pedestrian.
  4. The unicorn tossed his gleaming white mane.
  5. Have you seen that monkey jumping about in the road?
  6. It rained all day on Tuesday last week.
  7. Beckham tackled the defender.
  8. The train to the Millennium Dome was late.

Now make up some of your own.
