---------------------------------------------

Step 1: 

Review the definition of an adverb.

a word or phrase that modifies or qualifies an adjective, verb, or other adverb or a word group, expressing a relation of place, time, circumstance, manner, cause, degree, etc. (e.g., gently, quite, then, there ). 

Step 2: 

Review the definition of an adjective.

a word or phrase naming an attribute, added to or grammatically related to a noun to modify or describe it. 

Step 3: 

Write the following paragraph on the board:

Travis entered the classroom. The class had just returned from recess. It was time to take a math test. Travis sat down at his desk. The test was face down on his desk. The teacher gave some instructions, and Travis flipped over his test. He looked at the first problem.

Step 4: 

Challenge the students to change the mood and meaning of the paragraph by using adverbs and adjectives. The students may work as a whole group, in small groups, or individually in their writing journals.

If working in groups, instruct each group to create a different mood. For example, happy, scared, anxious, mad, etc.
