Parts of Speech - Adverbs

 

Instructions: Find the adverbs in the following sentences, tell what word they modify, and what they tell us. Remember that adverbs tell us how, when, where, why and modify the verb. They also can shift in a sentence. Adverbs that tell us how much modify adjectives or other adverbs. These adverbs must come before the word they modify.
