Moving with Adverbs

Students of grade 5 were engaged in a PEC activity to reinforce the concept that adverbs describe the verb. The activity was modified to reinforce the correct spellings of adverbs (adding -ly). The physical skill catered to was Locomotor skills. It started by reminding the students that most adverbs end in -ly and that their most common use is describing verbs. The students moved around the general space doing various locomotor skills. Then the students altered the way they were doing the skills by listening to the adverbs being called out by the teacher. For example, start with walking - the students start walking at first and then add the adverb by telling them to walk quickly. PEC helps to improve the physical health and memory skills to enhance their ability to control attention. Students enjoyed jumping over rings and hurdles to develop their gross motor skills.
