Today Room 5 learnt some more about adverbs and how to put them in different parts of the sentence. You can put them in the beginning, in the middle and at the end to change the structure of your sentences. This makes the writing more interesting to read.

This is a link to our activity.

Room 5 learnt about how to improve sentence structure in writing this week. They learnt how using adverbs in different places in the sentence can make their paragraph more interesting and it can also tell the reader more information about what is happening. An adverb is how something is done. eg. Running quickly or swarming aggressively.

Adverbs are cool and make our writing better!

Here are great examples. Click on the link to follow.

Today we all enjoyed the discovery of static electricity. We quickly rubbed the balloons on the carpet and our hair to charge them. We found that the two charged balloons repelled each other and we found that if we charged the balloon we could pick up little bits of paper. We think it couldn't pick up the big piece of paper because it was too heavy.
