Fun with adverbs? How is that possible?

Well, with the fun game taught in today's video, your kids will identify adverbs quickly AND build their vocabulary -- even when they get the answer wrong!

Adverbs are descriptive words, and the more descriptive words your kids know, the more interesting and varied their writing style will be!

Please watch the video below for a directions on how to play "In the Manner of The Word," a variation on charades. It's physical, creative, and for all ages.
