Adverbs and ABC Order: A Differentiated Spring Literacy Center
This partner center reviews ABC order while also helping students to learn to identify examples of adverbs and use them in sentences.
To use, copy the recording sheet and print and laminate the sheep cards. There are two sets of cards provided. The black sheep set requires ABC order to the first letter. The white sheep set requires ABC order to the third letter and is a bit more challenging. Use the two sets of cards to differentiate instruction or use the center twice, once with each set.
Common Core Standards addressed: *CCS.2.L.2e: Use adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified. *CCS.3.L.1a: Explain the function of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs in general and their functions in particular sentences.
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
