"Adverbs work terrifically
when answering specifically . . .
Penguins all dress DECENTLY.
Toe dancers practice FREQUENTLY.
This house was painted RECENTLY . . .and
Small green frogs live THERE."
There are eight titles in the World of Language Series by Ruth Heller. Up, Up and Away teaches the meaning and uses of adverbs through luscious illustrations and rollicking rhymes.
What I Love:
Ruth Heller's larger-than-life illustrations are colorful and bold, immediately engaging the attention of young readers. Her rhymes are fun to read aloud. Her unique way of introducing children to the mechanics of language makes this book, and the others of its kind, a valuable resource for parents and educators. As I understand it, these books will be of use in teaching CCSS.
